1 16 Chapter P Prerequisites P.2 Properties of Real Numbers What you should learn: Identify and use the basic properties of real numbers Develop and use additional properties of real numbers Why you should learn it: Understanding properties of real numbers will help you to understand and use the properties of algebra. Mathematical Systems In this section, you will review the properties of real numbers. These properties make up the third component of what is called a mathematical system. These three components are a set of numbers, operations with the set of numbers, and properties of the numbers (and operations). Figure P.8 is a diagram that represents different mathematical systems. Note that the set of numbers for the system can vary. The set can consist of whole numbers, integers, rational numbers, real numbers, or algebraic expressions. Whole numbers Integers Input set Defined operation Addition Multiplication Subtraction Division Exponentiation Etc. Rational numbers Real numbers Properties Commutative Associative Identity Distributive Etc. Algebraic expressions Algorithms Vertical multiplication Long division Etc. Figure P.8 Basic Properties of Real Numbers For the mathematical system that consists of the set of real numbers together with the operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division, the resulting properties are called the properties of real numbers. In the list on page 17, a verbal description of each property is given, as well as one or two examples.

2 Section P.2 Properties of Real Numbers 17 Properties of Real Numbers Let a, b, and c represent real numbers. Property Verbal Description Closure Property of Addition The sum of two real numbers is a real number. a b is a real number. Example: 1 5 6, and 6 is a real number. Closure Property of Multiplication The product of two real numbers is a real number. ab is a real number. Example: , and 21 is a real number. Commutative Property of Addition a b b a Two real numbers can be added in either order. Example: Commutative Property of Multiplication Two real numbers can be multiplied in either order. a b b a Example: Associative Property of Addition a b c a b c When three real numbers are added, it makes no difference which two are added first. Example: Associative Property of Multiplication ab c a bc Distributive Properties a b c ab ac a b c ac bc When three real numbers are multiplied, it makes no difference which two are multiplied first. Example: Multiplication distributes over addition. Examples: Additive Identity Property The sum of zero and a real number equals the number itself. a 0 0 a a Example: Multiplicative Identity Property The product of 1 and a real number equals the number itself. a 1 1 a a Example: Additive Inverse Property The sum of a real number and its opposite is zero. a a 0 Example: Multiplicative Inverse Property The product of a nonzero real number and its reciprocal is 1. a 1 a 1, a 0 Example: The operations of subtraction and division are not listed above because they fail to possess many of the properties described in the list. For instance, subtraction and division are not commutative. To see this, consider and Similarly, the examples and illustrate the fact that subtraction and division are not associative.

3 18 Chapter P Prerequisites Example 1 Identifying Properties of Real Numbers Name the property of real numbers that justifies each statement. (Note: a and b are real numbers.) (a) (b) (c) (d) (e) 4 a 3 4 a b 3 2 b b 8 0 b 8 (a) This statement is justified by the Commutative Property of Multiplication. (b) This statement is justified by the Distributive Property. (c) This statement is justified by the Multiplicative Inverse Property. (d) This statement is justified by the Associative Property of Addition. (e) This statement is justified by the Additive Identity Property. Now try Exercise 1. x 2 3 A 1 A 2 Figure P.9 Example 2 Identifying Properties of Real Numbers The area of the rectangle in Figure P.9 can be represented in two ways: as the area of a single rectangle, or as the sum of the areas of the two rectangles. (a) Find this area in both ways. (b) What property of real numbers does this demonstrate? (a) The area of the single rectangle with width 3 and length x 2 is A 3 x 2. The areas of the two rectangles are A 1 3 x and A The sum of these two areas represents the area of the single rectangle. That is, A A 1 A 2 3 x 2 3 x 3 2 3x 6. (b) Because the area of the single rectangle and the sum of the areas of the two rectangles are equal, you can write 3 x 2 3x 6. This demonstrates the Distributive Property. Now try Exercise 85. To help you understand each property of real numbers, try stating the properties in your own words.

5 20 Chapter P Prerequisites Additional Properties of Real Numbers Let a, b, and c be real numbers. Properties of Equality Addition Property of Equality If a b, then a c b c. Multiplication Property of Equality If a b, then ac bc, c 0. Cancellation Property of Addition If a c b c, then a b. Cancellation Property of Multiplication If ac bc and c 0, then a b. Reflexive Property of Equality a a Symmetric Property of Equality If a b, then b a. Transitive Property of Equality If a b and b c, then a c. Properties of Zero Multiplication Property of Zero 0 a 0 Division Property of Zero 0 a 0 a 0, Division by Zero Is Undefined a is undefined. 0 Properties of Negation Multiplication by 1 1 a a 1 a a Placement of Negative Signs ab a b a b Product of Two Opposites a b ab Verbal Description Adding a real number to each side of a true equation produces another true equation. Multiplying each side of a true equation by a nonzero real number produces another true equation. Subtracting a real number from each side of a true equation produces another true equation. Dividing each side of a true equation by a nonzero real number produces another true equation. A real number always equals itself. If a real number equals a second real number, then the second real number equals the first. If a real number equals a second real number and the second real number equals a third real number, then the first real number equals the third real number. Verbal Description The product of zero and any real number is zero. If zero is divided by any nonzero real number, the result is zero. We do not define division by zero. Verbal Description The opposite of a real number a can be obtained by multiplying the real number by 1. The opposite of the product of two numbers is equal to the product of one of the numbers and the opposite of the other. The product of the opposites of two real numbers is equal to the product of the two real numbers.
