## doulo 2 years ago Name the algebraic property demonstrated in the example below. If x = 3 and 3 = y, then x = y.

1. doulikepiecauseidont

Transitive or symmetric property

2. doulo

its got be one of does

3. Directrix

Transitive Property. Substitution Property could be argued. I don't see Symmetric as a viable option.

4. SidK

transitive p

5. Directrix

@doulo What are the options?

6. warningiflirt

its transitive.

7. doulikepiecauseidont

symmetric well one side is equal to another side,

8. doulikepiecauseidont

What are the options then ?

9. Directrix

Symmetric: If a and b are real numbers and a = b, the b = a. That is not what is going on here.

10. doulikepiecauseidont

OOH, thats what that is, so is symmetric the same thing as communative?

11. Directrix

No. Symmetric is not the same as commutative. Symmetric flips two quantities about, in this case, the equality symbol. Symmetric: If a and b are real numbers and a = b, the b = a. Commutative flips about an operational symbol. Commutative property of Addition: If a and b are real numbers, then a + b = b + a.
