Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Transitive Property. Substitution Property could be argued. I don't see Symmetric as a viable option.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Symmetric: If a and b are real numbers and a = b, the b = a. That is not what is going on here.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0OOH, thats what that is, so is symmetric the same thing as communative?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2No. 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.
