# Properties of real numbers under addition and multiplication relationship

### Closure Property . . . fully explained . . . . Describe the distributive property of multiplication over addition, and name and letters and symbols to represent numbers and the relationship between them, as variables, and to recognise that is property is true for any (real) numbers. Students review some of the properties of Real Numbers. Q = rationals I = irrationals Z = integers Relationships among the real numbers - (sets and subsets). Properties of Real Numbers For example, is a whole number, but, since it lies between 5 and 6, must be Property Addition Multiplication; The associative property concerns itself with the regrouping of including the addition and multiplication of real numbers, integers, and rational.

The identity property is that there is a certain number that when operated with a number doesn't change it. The inverse property is something that results to the identity number.

The distributive property means that you can distribute the operation. Out of all of those properties, the distributive property is the one you'll probably use the most, because it is the only one that mentions both addition and multiplication at the same time. To give an example: This book is not going to prove many things, but it would be useful for us to take a look at how this works. Note that we can apply it to expressions with more than two numbers being added in parentheses. The proof is below. Finally we can substitute this expression for the second term back into the equation to get: This looks like a lot of mindless parenthesis juggling, but the point is that the distributive property applies to arbitrarily long sums and products. We will use this fact without justification that is, without proof. Let's remind ourselves what these properties tell us about arithmetic. Commutativity and Associativity together imply that it doesn't matter what order we add things up in. This property says using a formula that it doesn't matter which way you do it. What about those people who add a and c together first? Well, that is where commutativity comes in.

It tells us that we don't have add things up in exactly the order people write things down.

Identify Addition Properties of Real Numbers

And this is a pretty maybe common sense thing right here. But there's a fancy word for it called the additive inverse property. And all the additive-- I'll just write it down. I think it's kind of ridiculous that it's given such a fancy word for such a simple idea-- additive inverse property.

And it's just the idea that if you have a number and you add the additive inverse of the number, which is what most people call the negative of the number-- if you add the negative of the number to your number, you're going to get back to 0 because they have the same size, you could view it that way. They both have a magnitude of 5, but this is going five to the right and then you're going five back to the left.

Similarly, if you started at-- let me draw another number line right over here-- if you started at negative 3.

## Properties of matrix multiplication

If you're starting right over here at negative 3, so you've already moved three spaces to the left, and someone says, well what do I have to add to negative 3 to get back to 0? Well, I have to move three spaces to the right now. And three spaces to the right is in the positive direction. So I have to add positive 3.

### Commutative property - Wikipedia

So if I add positive 3 to negative 3, I will get 0. So in general, if I have any number-- if I have 1, and I say, what do I need to add to this to get back to 0? Well, I have to essentially go in the opposite direction. I have to go in the leftwards direction. So I'm going to subtract the same amount.
