## What are some properties of real numbers give an example?

Multiplication Properties of Real Numbers

Property: **a × b is a real number**. Verbal Description: If you multiply two real numbers, the product is also a real number. Example: 6 × 7 = 42 where 42 (the product of 6 and 7) is a real number.

## What are properties of numbers?

There are four basic properties of numbers: **commutative, associative, distributive, and identity**. You should be familiar with each of these. It is especially important to understand these properties once you reach advanced math such as algebra and calculus.

## Which property of real numbers states that?

The property states that, for every real number a, there is a unique number, called **the multiplicative inverse (or reciprocal)**, denoted 1 a displaystyle frac{1}{a} a1, that, when multiplied by the original number, results in the multiplicative identity, 1.

## What is distributive property for real numbers?

To “distribute” means to divide something or give a share or part of something. According to the distributive property, **multiplying the sum of two or more addends by a number will give the same result as multiplying each addend individually by the number and then adding the products together**.

## What does property mean in math?

In mathematics, a property is **any characteristic that applies to a given set**.

## Is 0 a real number?

Real numbers are, in fact, pretty much any number that you can think of. … Real numbers can be positive or negative, and **include the number zero**. They are called real numbers because they are not imaginary, which is a different system of numbers.
