# If a = b and b = c then comment on a = c.

We will use the concept of commutative property to comment on the relation between a and c.

## Answer: By using commutative property, if a = b and b = c, then a = c.

Let us see how we will use the concept of commutative property to comment on the relation between a and c.

**Explanation:**

The question is asked the definition of the transitive property.

According to the transitive property for three numbers m, n, o. If m = n and n = o then it is certain that m = o.

Let a = 12 × 4, b = 16 × 3 and c = 8 × 6

In the above question, we can see that a = b and both are equal to 48. It is also given that b = c. Now since b = 48 and b = c then c also will be equal to 48. Therefore, a = c.
