## Multiplicative Identity and Multiplicative Inverse

When an element is multiplied by element of a particular set, it gives the element unchanged, is known as multiplicative identity.

## What is Expanded Notation?

Expanded notation can be defined as a way of expressing numbers by showing the value of each digit. Writing a number in expanded notation is not like writing in expanded form.
