PropertyExampleDefinitionTerm
a + b = b + a4x + x^2 = x^2 + 4xUse this rule when adding two real numbers, variables, or algebraic expressionsCommutative Property of Addition
ab = ba(1 - x)x^2 = x^2(1 - x)Use this rule when multiplying two real numbers, variables, or algebraic expressionsCommutative Property of Multiplication
(a + b) + c = a + (b + c)(x + 5) + x^2 = x + (5 + x^2)Use this rule when adding three real numbers, variables, or algebraic expressionsAssociative Property of Addition
(ab)c = a(bc)(2x * 3y)(8) = (2x)(3y * 8)Use this rule when multiplying three real numbers, variables, or algbraic expressionsAssociative Property of Multiplication
a(b + c) = ab + bc; (a + b)c = ac + bc3x(5 + 2x) = 3x * 5 + 3x * 2x; (y + 8)y = y * y + 8 * yUse this rule when multiplying and adding three real numbers, variables, or algebraic expressionsDistributive Properties
a + 0 = a5y^2 + 0 = 5y^2What happens when you try to add any number to 0?Additive Identity Property
a * 1 = a(4x^2)(1) = 4x^2What happens when you multiply any number by 1?Multiplicative Identity Property
a + (-a) = 06x^3 + (-6x^3) = 0What happens when you try to add a number by its inverse?Additive Inverse Property
a * 1/a = 1, a /= 0(x^2 + 4)(1/(x^2 + 4)) = 1What happens when you try to multiply a term by its inverse form?Multiplicative Inverse Property
