Quadratic Equation

The basic algebraic properties of real numbers a, b and c are:

Property Description
Closure a + b and ab are real numbers
Commutative a + b = b + a, ab = ba
Associative (a+b) + c = a + (b+c), (ab)c = a(bc)
Distributive (a+b)c = ac+bc
Identity a+0 = 0+a = a
Inverse a + (-a) = 0, a(1/a) = 1
Cancellation If a+x=a+y, then x=y
Zero-factor a0 = 0a = 0
Negation -(-a) = a, (-a)b= a(-b) = -(ab), (-a)(-b) = ab
