# 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:**

**Transitive means to transfer.**

**"If a, b, and c are three quantities, and if a is related to b by some rule and b is related to c by the same rule, then a and c are related to each other by the same rule."**

**This property is called Transitive Property.**

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.
