Q. What property of equality would you use to solve for x in the equation 5x = 15?


Symmetry
Transitivity
Substitution
Division
Reflexive
Q. Which is an example of the symmetric property of equality?


A = A
If A = B and B = C, then A = C
If A = B, then B = A
If A = B, B can be used for all A
None of the above
Q. Which of these is not a property of equality (and therefore congruence)?


Symmetry
Reflexivity
Transitivity
Substitution
Inversion
Q. Which property lets us simplify the equation (10 – 5)2x – (10 – 5) = 0 to 52x – 5 = 0?


Transitive Property
Addition Property
Subtraction Property
Reflexive Property
Substitution Property
Q. We are given that A = B and C = D. What would make the statement A/C = B/D untrue?


A = 0
B = C
C = D
D = 0
Nothing, that statement is always true
