If x + c = 0, then x = -c

Statements:

1. x+c=0

2. (x+c)+(-c) = 0 + (-c)

3. x + [c+(-c)] = 0 + (-c)

4. x + 0 = 0 + (-c)

5. x = (-c)

Would 5 be the substitution property?

**Anonymous**, Sunday, October 26, 2008 at 12:43pmyes i think thats correct coz when we do this sum ,,,we do it in this way

x+c=0

x+c=0

-c -c (subtracting x both side)

-------

that is x=-c

**Olivea**, Sunday, October 26, 2008 at 12:51pmOh, thank you. For number 2, I originally had the definition of addition, but I was marked wrong. I'm not very sure, but wouldn't it be considered the definition of addition if you were adding (-c) to both sides? And also, in this case x+c would equal 0 so that would be the reason you are substituting 0 for x+c in number 2 as well. I don't really understand properties..
