## What is commutative and associative?

The associative property states that you can re-group numbers and you will get the same answer and the commutative property states that you can move numbers around and still arrive at the same answer.

## What is remainder and quotient?

The quotient is the number of times a division is completed fully, while the remainder is the amount left that doesn’t entirely go into the divisor. For example, 127 divided by 3 is 42 R 1, so 42 is the quotient, and 1 is the remainder.
