# Find the sum by suitable rearrangement:

(a) 837 + 208 + 363

(b) 1962 + 453 + 1538 + 647

**Solution:**

We will be using the associative property of addition to find the sum of the numbers given below.

(a) The given sum is 837 + 208 + 363

= (837 + 363) + 208

= 1200 + 208

= 1408

(b) The given sum is 1962 + 453 + 1538 + 647

= (1962 + 1538) + (453 + 647)

= 3500 + 1100

= 4600
