Name the property shown by the statement. 9(6n)=(9x6)n

I am stuck.

Tutors, please sign in to answer this question.

When multiplying three or more real numbers, their product is always the same regardless of their grouping.

For instance, let a, b, and c be real numbers then, by the above statement, the following is true:

(a • b) • c = a • (b • c) = (a • c) • b

This is known as the *associative property** of multiplication*.

Thus,

9 • (6 • n) = (9 • 6) • n = (9 • n) • 6
