    Oh alright, So would be it Additive Property?

    no, the additive property is "if a = b, then a + c = b + c" (listed in second section of the page)

    Or wait would it be the Subtractive Property?

    Subtraction Property of Equality: if a = b, then a - c = b - c so no

    Hummm, Yes somewhat. So our answers could be Reflexive, Symmetric, Transitive, or Subsitution?

    compare your original equation with the equations they have on that page

    Hummm alright so would it be a Symmetric Property?

    yes it would be, the symmetric property basically says that if two numbers are equal, then you can write them as first number = second number or second number = first number the order doesn't matter
