# Understanding the Basics of Math

Arithmetic is the ABC of math Addition subtraction multiplication and division are the basics of math and every math operation known to humankind In one way or another every equation graph and an enormous amount of other things can be broken down into the ABCs of math the four basic operations As people say math is a language and addition subtraction multiplication and division are its alphabet along with the number line as well The properties are basically proven ways to apply the mechanics of arithmetic into certain situations You can usually find these situations within an equation Some properties are much more basic and common then others consequently they pop up more often then others For example the reflexive property of equality probably the most basic property there is This property simply states that a number equals itself aa This property is so fundamental that every time you do anything with a number you see this property come up When solving a multiple step equation the only way we can really know that a number if left alone from one step to the next has stayed the same is because of the reflexive property This property allows us to establish that 11 and anywhere that that specific number comes up its value is equal to every other number written the same way 1 This is connected to the mechanics of arithmetic in the sense that all arithmetic operations assume that every number labeled 1 has a value of one If you multiply 1 with 2 the 1 has the same value of one as it does in any other operation done with that specific number 1 This is the most simple broken down and basic concept of math this property allows us to always make the assumption that a 1 we use in one operation has the same value of a 1 we use in another so that we can know the set value
