**Q 1 - Fill in the blank and identify the property of multiplication used:**

**_ × 6 = 0**

### Answer : C

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

The zero property of multiplication states that any real number a multiplied by zero is zero.

*a × 0 = 0 × a = 0*

**Step 2:**

So, 0 × 6 = 0

**Step 3:**

So, answer is 0

**Q 2 - Fill in the blank and identify the property of multiplication used:**

**3 ×_ = 9 × 3**

### Answer : A

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

The commutative property of multiplication states that the product of any two real numbers a and b is same regardless of the order of the numbers, i.e.,

*a × b = b × a*

**Step 2:**

So, 3 × 9 = 9 × 3

**Step 3:**

So, answer is 9

**Q 3 - Fill in the blank and identify the property of multiplication used:**

**(6 × _) × 5 = 6 × (8 × 5)**

### Answer : B

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

The associative property of multiplication states that the product of any three real numbers a, b and c is the same regardless of grouping or where parentheses are put, i.e.,

*(a × b) × c = a × (b × c)*

**Step 2:**

So, (6 × 8) × 5 = 6 × (8 × 5)

**Step 3:**

So, answer is 8

**Q 4 - Fill in the blank and identify the property of multiplication used:**

**1 × _ = 28**

### Answer : D

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

The identity property of multiplication states that any real number a multiplied by 1 is the number itself.

*a × 1 = 1 × a = a*

**Step 2:**

So, 1 × 28 = 28

**Step 3:**

So, answer is 28

**Q 5 - Fill in the blank and identify the property of multiplication used:**

**9 × _ = 0**

### Answer : A

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

The zero property of multiplication states that any real number a multiplied by zero is zero.

*a × 0 = 0 × a = 0*

**Step 2:**

So, 9 × 0 = 0

**Step 3:**

So, answer is 0

**Q 6 - Fill in the blank and identify the property of multiplication used:**

**13 × _ = 13**

### Answer : C

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

The identity property of multiplication states that any real number a multiplied by 1 is the number itself.

*a × 1 = 1 × a = a*

**Step 2:**

So, 13 × 1 = 13

**Step 3:**

So, answer is 1

**Q 7 - Fill in the blank and identify the property of multiplication used:**

**6 × _ = 7 × 6**

### Answer : D

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

The commutative property of multiplication states that the product of any two real numbers a and b is same regardless of the order of the numbers, i.e.,

*a × b = b × a*

**Step 2:**

So, 6 × 7 = 7 × 6

**Step 3:**

So, answer is 7

**Q 8 - Fill in the blank and identify the property of multiplication used:**

**(3 × 4) × _ = 3 × (4 × 10)**

### Answer : B

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

The associative property of multiplication states that the product of any three real numbers a, b and c is the same regardless of grouping or where parentheses are put, i.e.,

*(a × b) × c = a × (b × c)*

**Step 2:**

So, (3 × 4) × 10 = 3 × (4 × 10)

**Step 3:**

So, answer is 10

**Q 9 - Fill in the blank and identify the property of multiplication used:**

**15 × _ = 0**

### Answer : A

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

The zero property of multiplication states that any real number *a* multiplied by zero is zero.

*a × 0 = 0 × a = 0*

**Step 2:**

So, 15 × 0 = 0

**Step 3:**

So, answer is 0

**Q 10 - Fill in the blank and identify the property of multiplication used:**

**(8 × _) × 5 = 8 × (9 × 5)**

### Answer : C

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

The associative property of multiplication states that the product of any three real numbers a, b and c is the same regardless of grouping or where parentheses are put, i.e.,

*(a × b) × c = a × (b × c)*

**Step 2:**

So, (8 × 9) × 5 = 8 × (9 × 5)

**Step 3:**

So, answer is 9
