Graph the numbers – , 7 , and 3.6 on a

number line.

9 = 3, so – 9 = –3.

–9 < – 9.

Properties of Real Numbers

ALGEBRA 2 LESSON 1-1

Compare –9 and – 9. Use the symbols < and >.

Since –9 < –3, it follows that

ALGEBRA 2 LESSON 1-1

Which property is illustrated?

a. (–7)(2 • 5) = (–7)(5 • 2) b. 3 • (8 + 0) = 3 • 8

The given equation is true because 2 • 5 = 5 • 2.

The given equation is true because 8 + 0 = 8.

So, the equation uses the Commutative Property

of Multiplication.

This is an instance of the Identity Property of Addition.

Simplify | 4 |, |–9.2|, and |3 – 8|.

–9.2 is 9.2 units from 0, so |–9.2| = 9.2.

|3 – 8| = |–5| and –5 is 5 units from 0. So, |–5| = 5, and hence |3 – 8| = 5.
