## Study Notes

### Algebraic Proofs and Properties

- Algebraic proofs are used to justify the steps involved in solving algebraic equations.
- Main algebraic properties include:
- Reflexive Property: a = a for any number a.
- Symmetric Property: If a = b, then b = a for any numbers a and b.
- Transitive Property: If a = b and b = c, then a = c for any numbers a, b, and c.
- Addition/Subtraction Property: If a = b, then a + c = b + c and a - c = b - c.
- Multiplication/Division Property: If a = b, then ac = bc; if c â‰ 0, then a/c = b/c.
- Substitution Property: If a = b, then a can be replaced by b in any equation or expression.
- Distribution Property: a(b + c) = ab + ac for any numbers a, b, and c.

### Application of Algebraic Proofs

- Example of proof for the equation 6x + 2(x-1) = 30:
- Uses distributive, substitution, addition, and division properties to find x = 4.

- Example of proof for the equation 4x + 6/2 = 9:
- Involves multiplication, substitution, and division properties leading to x = 3.

- Example of proof for the equation 4x + 8 = x + 2:
- Applies subtraction and division properties to solve for x = -2.

### Geometric Proofs

- Geometric proofs involve numbers as measures, employing properties to establish truth in statements.
- Key geometric properties mirror algebraic properties:
- Reflexive Property: For segments or angles, AB = AB and angle A = angle A.
- Symmetric Property: For segments or angles, if AB = CD, then CD = AB; if angle A = angle B, then angle B = angle A.
- Transitive Property: For segments or angles, if AB = CD and CD = EF, then AB = EF; similarly for angles.

### Applications of Geometric Proofs

- To prove relationships between angles:
- Example: If angle 1 = angle 2 and angle 2 = angle 3, then angle 1 = angle 3 via transitive property.
- Example: If angle 1 = 90 and angle 2 = angle 1, then angle 2 = 90 through substitution.

- To establish equivalence of segments:
- Example: If AB = CD, then 1/2AB = 1/2CD employs the multiplication property.

### Formula and Area Proofs

- For triangles, the area formula A = 1/2bh leads to proving that bh equals two times the area:
- Start with A = 1/2bh and multiply both sides by 2 to derive 2A = bh.
