What you should learn How to use algebra to write two-column proofs How to use properties of equality in geometry proofs

Vocabulary Deductive argument Two-column proof Formal poof

Properties of Equality for Real Numbers Addition/Subtraction Properties of Equality Multiplication/Division Properties of Equality Substitution Property of Equality Distributive Property You can add/subtract the same value from both sides of an equation You can multiply/divide both sides of an equation by the same value You can replace one thing with another of EQUAL value a(b + c) = ab + ac AND ab + ac = a(b + c)

Reflexive Property of Equality Symmetric Property of Equality Transitive Property of Equality A number is equal to itself. a = a You can switch the left and right sides of an equation If a = b then b = a If a = b and b = c then a = c
