Commutative Property  applies to only addition and multiplication, NOT subtraction or division EX: a + b = b + a OR a x b = b x a 
Associative Property  (the parentheses are grouping symbols) applies only to addition and multiplication, NOT subtraction or division EX: (a + b) + c = a + (b + c) OR (a x b) c = a (b x c) 
Distributive Property  distributes multiplication over addition EX: a (b + c) = ab + ac OR (ab + ac) = a (b + c) (This does NOT apply to subtraction or division; a, b, and c are rational numbers.) 
Evaluating Expressions That Contain Absolute Value:  First, calculate any calculations inside the absolute value bars as if they were parentheses. When the expression is reduced to a single value, apply the absolute value. 
Absolute Value  cannot be distributed, and absolute value is neither positive or negative, but you treat it like a positive
