The Commutative Property: Definition and Examples

1. The Commutative Property: Definition and Examples

The commutative property in mathematics asserts that terms in an equation can be swapped, and still have the same answer. Learn the implications of this principle, and how to use it in examples problems.

Additive Identity: Definition & Examples

2. Additive Identity: Definition & Examples

The additive identity property says that when a real number and zero are added together the same real number is the result. Explore the definition and examples of additive identity, and learn about properties of numbers and additive identity for real, imaginary, and complex numbers and sets.

Inverse Operations in Math: Definition & Examples

3. Inverse Operations in Math: Definition & Examples

In mathematics, inverse operations are opposite operations that undo each other to return to the starting number. Explore the definition, properties, and examples of inverse operations, and learn how to use inverse operations to solve algebraic problems.

Identity Property: Definition & Examples

4. Identity Property: Definition & Examples

Identity property makes use of an identity that when added, subtracted, multiplied, or divided to a given number will result in the same number. Learn about the definition, see examples, and understand why identities are always 0 and 1.

The Associative Property: Definition and Examples

5. The Associative Property: Definition and Examples

The associative property is a principle in mathematics which states that in addition or multiplication problems, terms grouped in different ways produce the same answer. Study the definition and examples of this principle, and it's importance.
