# If 8 = x and x = y, then 8 = y is an example of which algebraic property?

Symmetric Property.

Transitive Property.

Reflexive Property.

Commutative Property of Multiplication.

**Solution:**

We know that transitive property can be applied to algebraic expressions, numbers and geometrical concepts such as congruent angles.

General formula of transitive property for real numbers a, b and c is

If a = b and b = c then c = a

According to this expression,

8 = x and x = y, then 8 = y where a = 8, b = x and c = y.

Therefore, 8 = x and x = y, then 8 = y is an example of transitive property.

## If 8 = x and x = y, then 8 = y is an example of which algebraic property?

**Summary:**

If 8 = x and x = y, then 8 = y is an example of transitive property.
