Associative property of addition can be summarized algebraically as: (a + b) + c = a + (b + c) • (3 + 5) + 2 = 8 + 2 = 10 • 3 + (5 + 2) = 3 + 7 = 10 • (3 + 5) + 2 = 3 + (5 + 2).**Associative Property of Multiplication**• The product of a set of numbers is the same no matter how the numbers are grouped. The associative property of multiplication can be summarized algebraically as: (ab)c = a(bc)**Commutative Property of Addition**• The sum of a group of numbers is the same regardless of the order in which the numbers are arranged. Algebraically, the commutative property of addition states: a + b = b + a • 5 + 2 = 2 + 5 because 5 + 2 = 7 and 2 + 5 = 7 • -3 + 11 = 11 - 3**Commutative Property of Multiplication**• The product of a group of numbers is the same regardless of the order in which the numbers are arranged. Algebraically, commutative property of multiplication can be written as: ab = ba • 8x6 = 48 and 6x8 = 48: thus, 8x6 = 6x8**Distributive Property**• The sum of two addends multiplied by a number is the sum of the product of each addend and the number • A(b+c) • Ab + Ac • 3x(2y+4) • 6xy + 12x**Property of Opposites/Inverse Property of Addition**• When a number is added by itself negative or positive to make zero a + (-a) = 0 • 5 + (-5) = 0 • -3y + (3y) = 0**For two ratios, if a/b = c/d, then b/a = d/c**a(1/a) = 1 5(1/5) = 1 8/1 x 1/8 = 1 A number times its reciprocal, always equals one A Reciprocal is its reverse and opposite (the signs switch from + to — or vice versa) Property Of Reciprocals/Inverse Property of Multiplication**Reciprocal Function(continued)**• The reciprocal function: y = 1⁄x. For every x except 0, y represents its multiplicative inverse**Identity Property of Addition**• A number that can be added to any second number without changing the second number. Identity for addition is 0 (zero) since adding zero to any number will give the number itself: 0 + a = a + 0 = a • 0 + (-3) = (-3) + 0 = -3 • 0 + 5 = 5 + 0 = 5**Identity Property of Multiplication**• A number that can be multiplied by any second number without changing the second number. Identity for multiplication is "1,“ instead of 0, because multiplying any number by 1 will not change it. a x 1 = 1 x a = a • (-3) x 1 = 1 x (-3) = -3 • 1 x 5 = 5 x 1 = 5**Multiplicative Property of Zero**• Anything number or variable multiplied times zero (0), will always equal zero • 5 x 0=0 • 5g x 0=0 No matter what number is being multiplied by zero, it will always be zero A really long way to explain the Multiplicative Property of Zero (Proof) http://upload.wikimedia.org/math/b/5/8/b5892630f1d2f28a580331a1d7e3e79f.png**Closure Property of Addition**• Sum (or difference) of 2 real numbers equals a real number • 10 – (5)= 5**Closure Property of Multiplication**• Product (or quotient if denominator 0) of 2 Reals equals a real number • 5 x 2 = 10**Exponents**Exponents are the little numbers above numbers, that mean that the number is multiplied by itself that many times 7 × 7 = (7 × 7) × (7 × 7 × 7 × 7 × 7 × 7) When two exponents or numbers with exponents are being multiplied, you add both exponents, but you still multiply the number or variable 3x (5x ) = 15x 15x (Exponents) Product of Powers Property 3 4 2 6 (3+4) 7**Power of a Product Property**• To find a power of a product, find the power of each factor and then multiply.

X= ?y + ? Then, you replace the x or the y in the equation that you didn’t touch yet, and you must insert If you isolated the y, then you will solve for x If you isolated the x, then you will solve for y Elimination The Elimination Method, is used when there are two equations and, it is said to be a lot easier than the Substitution Method First, you will have to decide whether you want to go for the x or the y Then, you will multiply and cancel/eliminate either x or y depending, on which one did you chose to do (x or y) Then you solve for x or y You will eventually substitute, more like insert your y or x answer into the either problem replacing it with x or y Then you solve for either x or y Linear Systems— Method Explanation**Substitution Method**y = 11 - 4x Isolate the Y or X Substitute the number, insert it x + 2(11 - 4x) = 8 Solve for X and Solve for Y (vice versa) Answers**Literal Coefficients**http://www.tpub.com/math1/13d.htm Simultaneous equations with literal coefficients and literal constants may be solved for the value of the variables just as the other equations discussed in this chapter, with the exception that the solution will contain literal numbers. For example, find the solution of the system: We proceed as with any other simultaneous linear equation. Using the addition method, we may proceed as follows: To eliminate the y term we multiply the first equation by 3 and the second equation by -4. The equations then become … To eliminate x, we multiply the first equation by 4 and the second equation by -3. The equations then become We may check in the same manner as that used for other equations, by substituting these values in the original equations. 3 Variables !!**2x – 3y = 19**5x – 2y = 20 2x – 3y = 19 (2) 5x – 2y = 20 (-3) 4x – 6y = 38 -15x + 6y = -60 -11x = -22 X = 2 2x – 3y = 19 2(2) – 3y = 19 4 – 3y = 19 -3y = 15 Y = -5 The two equations Now we multiply and then later cancel out a variable, depending which one you chose Now we got one answer—x = 2 Now we must insert the two, into the either of the equations…(substitution method) Now you got the y = -5 Elimination Method**Dependent**• When a system is "dependent," it means that ALL points that work in one of them ALSO work in the other one • Graphically, this means that one line is lying entirely on top of the other one, so that if you graphed both, you would really see only one line on the graph, since they are imposed on top of each other • One of them totally DEPENDS on the other one**Independent**• When a system is "independent," it means that they are not lying on top of each other • There is EXACTLY ONE solution, and it is the point of intersection of the two lines • It's as if that one point is "independent" of the others. • To sum up, a dependent system has INFINITELY MANY solutions. An independent system has EXACTLY ONE solution
