Properties  Properties of Equality
 Property:
 Definition:
 Example:

Property Reflexive
 Definition: a=a
 Example: 5=5

Property Symmetric
 Definition: If a=b, then a=c
 Example: If =0.5, then 0.5=


Property Substitution
 Definition: If a=b, then you can replace a with b & vice versa
 Example: If a=b & 9+a=15, then 9+b=15

Property Addition
 Definition: If a=b, then a+c=b+c
 Example: If x=12, then x+3=12+3

Property Subtraction
 Definition: If a=b, then ac=bc
 Example: If x=12, then x3=123

Property Multiplication
 Definition: If a=b, then a⋅c=b⋅c
 Example: If x=12, then x⋅3=12⋅3

Property Division
 Definition: If a=b, then a÷c=b÷c (with c≠0)
 Example: If x=12, then x÷3=12÷3
