The property illustrated in your example is the associative property.

For the next part, these properties only hold for addition and multiplication.

Communicative property (you can change the order of numbers and the
result is the same):
3 + 2 = 2 + 3

Associative Property (you can group smaller additions and
multiplications in different orders and the result is the same):

1 + (2 + 3) = (1 + 2) + 3

Additive Property (if you have a valid equation, you can add or
multiply both sides by the same amount while keeping the equation

1 + 2 = 3
1 + 2 + 5 = 3 + 5

Thank you for your question.
