Talk:Associative property of multiplication
I am not sure that this deserves its own page. Shouldnt this be one part of an article entitled Laws of Arithmetic? See for example: http://mathforum.org/dr.math/faq/faq.property.glossary.html
This would be better if there was a single article gathering together all the laws and treating them in one place. The laws could then be hived off to individual articles about Associativity, Commutativity Distributivity etc., which could then have a more genreal algebraic treatment. For example Distributivity might consider the way that scalar muliplication is distributed over vector addition in Linear algebra, and De Morgan's Laws in set theory.
