**Answer: **Associative property

**Step by Step Explanation: **- The statement we are given is:

+ ( + ) = ( + ) + . - According to the statement, the sum of + ( + ) is equal to the sum of ( + ) + .

It holds true according to the associative property.

*The associative property,* states that if we are adding or multiplying three numbers, it does not matter where we put the parenthesis. In other words, the associative property states that we can add or multiply regardless of how the numbers are grouped. By 'grouped' we mean 'how we use the parenthesis'.

For example: 2 + (3 + 5) = (2 + 3) + 5

10 = 10 - Hence, the property of the given statement is the
**associative property**.
