The associative property of addition says that the addends can be "associated" in any grouping without changing the result. 8 is associated with 5$\ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \$8 is assocaiated with 11 $\overbrace{(5+8)}+11\ \ \ \ \ \ =\ \ \ \ \ \ 5+\overbrace{(8+11)}$ $\ \ \ \ \ \ \ 13+11\ \ \ \ \ \ =\ \ \ \ \ \ 5+19$ $\ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ 24\ \ \ \ \ \ =\ \ \ \ \ 24\checkmark$
