4/21/2017 Properties of REAL Numbers

Opposites Two real numbers that are the same distance from the origin of the real number line are opposites of each other. EXAMPLES -100 AND AND -2 4/21/2017

Reciprocals 4/21/2017

Absolute Value 4/21/2017

a + b = b + a When adding two numbers, the order of the numbers does not matter. EXAMPLES 2 + 3 = 3 + 2 (-5) + 4 = 4 + (-5) 4/21/2017

Commutative Property of Multiplication
a × b = b × a When multiplying two numbers, the order of the numbers does not matter. EXAMPLES 2 × 3 = 3 × 2 (-3) × 24 = 24 × (-3) 4/21/2017

a + (b + c) = (a + b) + c When three numbers are added, it makes no difference which two numbers are added first. EXAMPLES 2 + (3 + 5) = (2 + 3) + 5 (4 + 2) + 6 = 4 + (2 + 6) 4/21/2017

Associative Property of Multiplication
a(bc) = (ab)c When three numbers are multiplied, it makes no difference which two numbers are multiplied first. EXAMPLES 2 × (3 × 5) = (2 × 3) × 5 (4 × 2) × 6 = 4 × (2 × 6) 4/21/2017

Distributive Property
a(b + c) = ab + ac Multiplication distributes over addition. EXAMPLES 2 (3 + 5) = (2 × 3) + (2 × 5) (4 + 2) × 6 = (4 × 6) + (2 × 6) 4/21/2017

The additive identity property states that if 0 is added to a number, the result is that number. EXAMPLE = = 3 4/21/2017

Multiplicative Identity Property
The multiplicative identity property states that if a number is multiplied by 1, the result is that number. EXAMPLE 5 × 1 = 1 × 5 = 5 4/21/2017

The additive inverse property states that opposites add to zero. EXAMPLE 7 + (-7) = 0 and = 0 4/21/2017
