THEA Test: Properties of Basic Math - Chapter Summary

Studying for the THEA can feel a bit overwhelming at times, which is why it's good to refresh your knowledge of as many test topics as possible. In this chapter, you can rediscover the properties of basic math so you're ready to address the following:

  • Understanding the commutative and associative properties of algebra
  • Examining the multiplication property of zero
  • Defining and understanding the uses of the distributive property
  • Analyzing the addition and subtraction properties of equality
  • Solving problems using the multiplication, division and transitive properties of equality

Expert instructors offer step-by-step guidance to ensure you understand the definitions and mathematical operations associated with the properties of basic math. Watch the videos in any order and as often as you'd like until you absorb the concepts.

THEA Test: Properties of Basic Math Objectives

The properties of basic math topics covered in this chapter are found in the math section of the computer-based THEA test. You can watch the video lessons and take self-assessment quizzes in this chapter to prepare for the 50 multiple-choice questions you'll need to answer in this section, which is one of three total. Doing so will get you closer to earning a passing math score of at least 230 and showing you're ready to enter as a freshman at a public college or university in Texas.

The Commutative Property: Definition and Examples

1. The Commutative Property: Definition and Examples

There are three major properties that deal with the addition and multiplication of numbers. One of those properties is the commutative property. This lesson will define and give examples of the commutative property and how it works.

The Associative Property: Definition and Examples

2. The Associative Property: Definition and Examples

There are three basic number properties that help to form the backbone of algebra. One of those properties is the associative property. This lesson will define the associative property and give some examples of how it works.

The Multiplication Property of Zero: Definition & Examples

3. The Multiplication Property of Zero: Definition & Examples

The number zero has different rules than other numbers; it behaves according to it's own unique properties. This lesson will define the multiplication property of zero and give some examples of how it works.

Distributive Property: Definition, Use & Examples

4. Distributive Property: Definition, Use & Examples

After completing this lesson, you will be able to state the distributive property and apply it to various types of problems. You will also be able to accurately perform the mathematical operations that are involved with the distributive property.

Addition Property of Equality: Definition & Example

5. Addition Property of Equality: Definition & Example

After watching this video lesson, you should be able to use the addition property of equality to help you solve problems. In addition, you can learn the formula for this property.

Subtraction Property of Equality: Definition & Example

6. Subtraction Property of Equality: Definition & Example

In this video lesson, we look at the subtraction property of equality. Learn how it helps you to solve problems and how it keeps equations the same. Learn what you must do to both sides of an equation.

Multiplication Property of Equality: Definition & Example

7. Multiplication Property of Equality: Definition & Example

After watching this video lesson, you will learn to use the multiplication property of equality to help you solve problems in math. You will also learn the formula for this property.

Division Property of Equality: Definition & Example

8. Division Property of Equality: Definition & Example

In this video lesson, you will learn about the division property of equality, its formula, and how you can use it to help you solve problems where you are looking for an unknown number.

Transitive Property of Equality: Definition & Example

9. Transitive Property of Equality: Definition & Example

After watching this video lesson, you will understand how the transitive property of equality works when you have two equations that are equal to each other. Learn the formula for this property and how you can use it to help you solve problems.
