# Basic Number Properties for Algebra

TLDRThe video introduces key mathematical properties and explains how they apply in algebra when manipulating variables. It focuses on the distributive property, which allows numbers or variables to be distributed across sums and differences within parentheses. Other properties covered include commutative (order doesn't matter in addition/multiplication), associative (grouping doesn't matter in addition/multiplication), additive/multiplicative identity, and inverse properties. These properties will prove useful when simplifying algebraic expressions and equations.

###### Takeaways

- π The distributive property is important in algebra for manipulating variables.
- π We can use the distributive property to distribute a number or variable across a parenthetical sum or difference.
- π§ We can also use the distributive property in reverse to factor out a common factor.
- π€ The commutative property still applies to addition and multiplication with algebraic terms.
- π The commutative property does not apply to subtraction or division.
- π The associative property allows flexibility in grouping terms when doing addition or multiplication.
- π Adding or subtracting zero retains an algebraic term's identity.
- π Multiplying by one retains an algebraic term's identity.
- π€ X plus negative X equals zero (additive inverse property).
- π₯³ X times one over X equals one (multiplicative inverse property).

###### Q & A

### What is the distributive property and why is it important in algebra?

-The distributive property states that a number or variable can be distributed across a parenthetical sum or difference. This allows you to multiply each term in the parentheses separately. It is important in algebra because it allows you to manipulate algebraic expressions into equivalent forms.

### How can the distributive property be used in reverse?

-The distributive property can be reversed by factoring out the greatest common factor from a sum or difference of terms. This involves identifying the factor that is common to all terms and factoring it out front.

### Which mathematical properties also apply to algebraic expressions?

-The commutative, associative, additive identity, and multiplicative identity properties apply to algebraic expressions the same way they apply to numbers.

### Do the commutative and associative properties apply to subtraction and division?

-No, the commutative and associative properties only apply to addition and multiplication, not subtraction and division.

### What is the additive identity property?

-The additive identity property states that adding or subtracting zero from a number or algebraic term leaves the original term unchanged.

### What is the multiplicative identity property?

-The multiplicative identity property states that multiplying any number or algebraic term by 1 leaves the original term unchanged.

### What is the additive inverse property?

-The additive inverse property states that a number plus its additive inverse equals 0. For example, x + (-x) = 0.

### What is the multiplicative inverse property?

-The multiplicative inverse property states that a number times its multiplicative inverse equals 1. For example, x * (1/x) = 1.

### Why are properties like commutative and associative important in algebra?

-These properties allow algebraic expressions and equations to be manipulated into equivalent forms. This provides flexibility in solving problems.

### What is the main takeaway about properties in algebra?

-The same number properties that apply to arithmetic expressions also apply to algebraic expressions. Understanding these properties provides tools for manipulating algebraic equations.
