If 2 = x, then x = 2

this is symmetric property

Commutative property

5. CadenSkinner2003 says:

A(b+c)=ab+ac

distributive property

You're switching a and b to get the same answer. It works with Multiplication too, as you can tell!

The correct option is

Step-by-step explanation:  We are given to select the property that allows the left member of the equation to be changed to the right member.

8 + 0 = 8.

We now that

if a is a real number, then the equation a + 0 = a is the additive identity.

Putting a = 8, we get

$8+0=8.$

Thus, the required property is additive identity.

Option (7) is CORRECT.

Step-by-step explanation:

Given : b + a = a + b

To find : Select the property that allows the left member of the equation to be changed to the right member.

Solution : We have given  b + a = a + b

By the commutative - addition property : x + y = y +x

Example : 4 +5 = 5 +4

9 = 9.

If we inter change the left member of equation to the right member of the equation it will not affect.

Hence it is  shows the commutative - addition property.
