Solutions

Chapter 1.1, Problem 13E
To determine

To state: the property of real numbers used in the given relation.

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 13E

Commutative property over multiplication of real numbers.

Explanation of Solution

Given information:

A relation is given as

  2x(3+y)=(3+y)2x

Calculation:

Commutative property over addition of real numbers:

If two real numbers are multiplied then the result does not depend on the order of multiplication.

Suppose a and b are two real numbers, commutative property says that

  c(a+b)=(a+b)c

Therefore, in 2x(3+y)=(3+y)2x , Commutative property over multiplicationof real numbers has been used.
