Pr o p er t y Addition and Subtraction Properties of Equality

`Addition Property of Equality A d d in g t h e s a m e n u m b e r t o e a c h s id e o f a n e q u a t io n`

produces an equivalent equation.

Algebra Example

For any real num bers a, b, and c,

if a = b, then a + c = b + c.

`x — 3 = 2`

x — 3 + 3 = 2 + 3

`Subtraction Property of Equality S u b t r a c t in g t h e s a m e n u m b e r f r o m e a c h s id e o f a n`

equation produces an equivalent equation.

Algebra

For any real num bers a, b, and c,

ifa = b, th e n a — c = b — c.

`Example`

X+ 3 = 2

x + 3 — 3 = 2
