Definition
 Associative property of Multiplication says that if $a, b, c\,$ are three real numbers then $a \cdot \left (b\cdot c \right) = \left (a\cdot b\right)\cdot c$ where " $\cdot$ " represent multiplication.

## Examples

$5 \cdot \left (3\cdot 2 \right) = \left (5\cdot 3\right)\cdot 2$

$5 \cdot 6 = 15 \cdot 2$

$30=30\,$
