## McGraw-Hill My Math Grade 3 Answer Key Chapter 2 Lesson 1 Addition Properties

In math, properties are rules you can use with numbers.

**Math in My World**

Example 1

Sid has 4 blue pens and 5 red pens. Mario has 5 blue pens and 4 red pens. How many pens does each boy have?

Find 4 + 5. Then find 5 + 4.

4 + 5 = ____. Sid has ___ pens

5 + 4 = ____. Mario has ___ pens

This shows the Commutative Property of Addition. The order in which the numbers were added did not change the sum.

Answer:

4 + 5 = 9. Sid has 9 pens

5 + 4 = 9. Mario has 9 pens

This shows the Commutative Property of Addition. The order in which the numbers were added did not change the sum.

Example 2

Anna practiced the piano for 3 hours on Friday. She did not practice at a!l on Saturday. How many hours did she practice altogether?

Find 3 + 0. Then find 0 + 3.

This shows the Identity Property of Addition. The sum of any number and zero is the number.

Sometimes you may want to group numbers in a way that makes them easier to add in your head. This is mental math.

Answer:

**Helpful Hint**

9 + 4 + 6 19 is a number sentence because it contains numbers, operations, and an equals sign.

Example 3

Matthew saw 9 sailboats, 4 rowboats, and 6 canoes on the lake. How many boats did he see altogether?

Since 4 + 6 = 10, finding 4 + 6 is easier than finding 9 + 4.

The way in which the addends are grouped does not change the sum. This is the Associative Property of Addition.

(9 + 4) + 6 = 9 + (4 + 6) = 9 + 10 Associative Property of Addition

= 9 + 10 Add 4 + 6.

= 19 Add 9 and 10.

So, (9 + 4) + 6 = ____. There are ____ boats on the lake.

Answer:

So, (9 + 4) + 6 = 19. There are 19 boats on the lake.

**Talk Math**
