1.
Which symbol would you use to balance the number sentence?

 a. I don′t know. b. × c. - d. +

#### Solution:

The product of any number and 1 is the number itself.

So, 8 × 1 = 8.

2.
Multiply:

 a. 33 b. 31 c. 32 d. 1

#### Solution:

The product of any number and 1 is the number itself.

So the product of 32 and 1 is 32.

3.
Select the expression that is an example for the identity property of addition.
 a. 4 + 0 = 4 b. 4 × 0 = 0 c. 4 × 1 = 4 d. 4 + 3 = 3 + 4

#### Solution:

According to identity property of addition, the sum of any number and zero is the same number.

So, among the number sentences listed, only '4 + 0 = 4' is an example of the identity property of addition.

4.
Pick out the number sentence that correctly shows the use of the identity property of multiplication.
 a. 8 + 1 = 9 b. 8 × 0 = 0 c. 8 × 1 = 8 d. 8 + 0 = 8

#### Solution:

According to the identity property of multiplication, the product of any number and 1 is the same number.

So, among the number sentences listed, only '8 × 1 = 8' correctly shows the use of the identity property of multiplication.

5.
Choose the appropriate symbol to balance the number sentence.

 a. > b. = c. < d. +

#### Solution:

The product of any number and zero is zero.

So, the product of 3800 and zero is zero.

The product of 5 and zero is also zero.

So, 3800 × 0 is equal to 5 × 0.

6.
Choose the operation that balances the equation.

 a. - b. + c. × d. ÷

#### Solution:

The product of any number and zero is zero.

So, 3200 × 0 = 0.

7.

 a. 0 and 1 cannot be added b. 10 c. 1

#### Solution:

The sum of any number and zero is the same number.

So, 1 + 0 is equal to 1.

8.

 a. 55 b. 550 c. none of these

#### Solution:

The sum of any number and zero is the same number.

So, 55 + 0 is equal to 55.

9.
Divide:
14 ÷ 1
 a. 13 b. 1 c. 14

#### Solution:

The quotient of any number divided by 1 is the same number, with no remainder.

So, 14 ÷ 1 = 14.

10.
Multiply:
9 × 1
 a. 1 b. 10 c. 9

#### Solution:

The product of any number and 1 is the number itself.

So the product of 9 and 1 is 9.
