 # Transitive Property of 5

## Enter a number below:

Using the number 5
Demonstrate the Transitive Property

## Define the Transitive Property:

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

Since a = 5, then set b = 5
Since b = 5, then set c = 5

Since a = b, substitute b for a
a = c = 5
Since b = c, substitute c for b
a = c = 5

a = b = c = 5
a = b = c = 5

a = b = c = 5
