i think it is c Which property is used in the statement? If y + 5 = 3, then y = –2. transitive property symmetric property addition property of equality subtraction property of equality

    Why do you think that it is C?

    So the addition property of equality would be used in a case like this: y - 5 = 3 because the inverse operation of subtraction would be addition.

    Do you still think it's C?

    I am not sure about the rest honestly. But here are some things that you should take into factor: Symmetric: If a = b, then b = a Transitive: If a = b and b = c, then a = c Subtraction property of equality: it would be used in a case like where you have to do the inverse operation of addition.

    Okay. So from the info that I gave you, what do you think you might want to cross out and why?

    i think i should cross out c and d because we already know that it is addition and there is no multiplication in the problem.

    I have a feeling that it can be B the remaining answer. Explanation: a = b and b = a -2 + 5 = 3 , where (-2 + 5) is "a" and 3 is "b" -- one way 3 = -2 +5 -- second way

    Which property is used in the statement? if k/2 =5 then k = 10 multiplication property of equality symmetric property reflexive property subtraction property of equality i thin k it is b but i change that i think it is c

    the reason that i think that is because its not symmetric and i don't see any multiplying or subtracting so thats y i think it is C
