12.7=7 b What property does this equation illustrate? What is the property of b? 9/17/2013 | Chris from San Jose, CA | 3 Answers | 0 Votes Mark favorite Subscribe Comment
If you divide both sides of the equation by 7, you will get the value of b. This uses the division property of equality. ~Lynne R. 9/17/2013 | Lynne R. Best answer Comment
If one were to look at this equation carefully, the equation could be reworded in a different but similar scenario: a(b)=(b)a where a(b) is just the inverse of (b)a (Commutative Property of Multiplication) Similarly, if a=7 then you get the scenario from the given equation: 7(b)=(b)7=12(7). -Andy Lai, Polymath Tutor 9/18/2013 | Andy L.
