## broweyebrit 2 years ago Name the algebraic property demonstrated in the example below. ab = ab Reflexive Property Transitive Property Symmetric Property Commutative Property of Multiplication

1. blahblah_who_cares

well which one do you think it is?

2. blahblah_who_cares

Are you confused or do you not understand the properties?

3. broweyebrit

symmetric property ?

4. jim_thompson5910

when you look in a mirror, you see yourself so when you look in a mirror, you are seeing your ____

Reflexive Property ? @jim_thompson5910

6. blahblah_who_cares

Well. The symmetric property means that if a=b, then b =a.

7. jim_thompson5910

yep, reflexive property

8. blahblah_who_cares

There are actually 2 answers for this problem. You have the first one.

9. jim_thompson5910

for any number, that number is equal to itself x = x

10. broweyebrit

thank you both!! @jim_thompson5910 and @blahblah_who_cares

11. blahblah_who_cares

whoops my bad. I was thinking of another property. It is only reflexive.

12. jim_thompson5910

so you can think of any number looking into a mirror and it will "see" itself and see it's reflection...which means that any number is equal to itself by the reflexive property
