#### Solutions

Chapter 1.1, Problem 7E
To determine

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

Expert Solution

Commutative property over addition of real numbers

### Explanation of Solution

Given information:

A relation is given as

7+10=10+7

Calculation:

Commutative property over addition of real numbers:

If two real numbers are added then the result does not depend on the order of addition.

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

a+b=b+a

Therefore, in 7+10=10+7 , Commutative property over addition of real numbers has been used.
