Associative property states that the operations one the numbers does not matter on how the numbers are grouped. But for the integers, division and subtraction depend on the grouping of numbers whereas addition and multiplication are associative for integers. For ex- (4÷2)÷3 does not equal 4÷(2 ÷ 3). Since. here the expression on the Left-hand side evaluates to (2/3) whereas the expression on the right-hand side evaluates to 6. Similarly, this property does not work for subtraction also. Associative property only works with the addition and multiplication of integers.
