Solve: x + 7 = 5(3x - 6)

Linear Equation





Which of the following is an example of the transitive property?

x + 5 = x + 5
If x = 5, then x - 1 = 5 - 1
If y = x - 1, then x - 1 = y
If x + 5 = y and y = - 1, then x + 5 = -1
Transitive Property





Which of the following is an example of the symmetric property?

If x + 4 = y and y = -3, then x + 4 = -3
If y = x - 3, then x - 3 = y
x + 4 = x + 4
If x = 4, then x - 3 = 4 - 3

Which property is illustrated in STEP 2?
5(10 - 9) + 9(28 - 7 • 4)
= 5(1) + 9(28 - 28) STEP 1
= 5(1) + 9(0) STEP 2
= 5 + 9(0) STEP 3
= 5 + 0 STEP 4
= 5 STEP 5
