PROPERTIES OF EQUALITY – If a, b, and c are real numbers, then…

Reflexive PropertySymmetric PropertyTransitive Property
a = a If a = b , then b=aIf a = b and b = c, then a = c
Distributive PropertyAddition Property of Equality (APE)Multiplication Property of Equality (MPE)
a(b+c) = ab + acIf a = b, then
a + c = b + c
If a = b, then
a x c = b x c
