The Real Number Properties Algebra 1 Homework And Practice
The properties of the Real Number System will prove useful when working with equations, functions and formulas in Algebra, as they allow for the creation of equivalent expressions which will often aid in solving problems. In addition, they can be used to help explain or justify solutions. |
Property(a, b and c are real numbers, variables or algebraic expressions) | Examples | Verbal hints | |
1. | Distributive Property | 3 • (4 + 5) = 3 • 4 + 3 • 5 | "multiplication distributes across addition" |
2. | Commutative Property of Addition | 3 + 4 = 4 + 3 | "commute = to get up and move to a new location : switch places" |
3. | Commutative Property of Multiplication | 3 • 4 = 4 • 3 | "commute = to get up and move to a new location: switch places" |
4. | Associative Property of Addition | 3 + (4 + 5) = (3 + 4) + 5 | "regroup - elements do not physically move, they simply group with a new friend." |
5. | Associative Property of Multiplication | 3 • (4 • 5) = (3 • 4) • 5 | "regroup - elements do not physically move, they simply group with a new friend." |
6. | Additive Identity Property | 4 + 0 = 4 | "the value that returns the input unchanged" |
7. | Multiplicative Identity Property | 4 • 1 = 4 | "the value that returns the input unchanged" |
8. | Additive Inverse Property | 4 + (-4) = 0 | "the value that brings you back to the identity element under addition" |
9. | Multiplicative Inverse Property | "the value that brings you back to the identity element under multiplication" | |
10. | Zero Property of Multiplication | 4 • 0 = 0 | "zero times any value is 0" |
11. | Closure Property of Addition | 10 + 5 = 15 (a real number) | "the sum of any two real numbers |
12. | Closure Property of Multiplication | 10 • 5 = 50 (a real number) | "the product of any two real numbers is another real number" |
13. | Addition Property of Equality | If x = 10, | "adding the same value to both sides of an equation will not change the truth value of the equation." |
14. | Subtraction Property of Equality | If x = 10, | "subtracting the same value from both sides of an equation will not change the truth value of the equation." |
15. | Multiplication Property of Equality | If x = 10, | "multiplying both sides of an equation by the same value will not change the truth value of the equation." |
16. | Division Property of Equality | If x = 10, | "dividing both sides of an equation by the same non-zero value will not change truth value of the equation." |
17. | Substitution Property | If x = 5, and x + y = z, | "a value may be substituted for its equal." |
18. | Reflexive (or Identity) Property of Equality | 12 = 12 | "a real number is always |
19. | Symmetric Property of Equality | "quantities that are equal can be read forward or backward" | |
20. | Transitive Property of Equality | If 2a = 10 and 10 = 4b, | "if two numbers are equal to the same number, then the two numbers are equal to each other" |
21. | Law of Trichotomy | If 8 > 6, then 8 6 and 8 is not < 6. | "for two real numbers a and b, a is either equal to b, greater than b, or less than b."(common sense) |
FYI: Regarding the term "natural numbers", there is no universal agreement about whether to include zero in this set. Most mathematicians hold with the older traditional and define natural numbers to be the counting numbers [positive integers {1, 2, 3, ...}]. Computer scientists, set theorists, logicians and other mathematicians define natural numbers to be the whole numbers [non-negative integers {0, 1, 2, ...}].This site will use the term "natural numbers" to refer to the counting numbers {1, 2, 3, ...}.
