In this lesson you will learn Properties of Real Numbers that will be very helpful in Algebra. You will begin with investigating the Rational Numbers and Irrational Numbers before reaching the Venn Diagram of the Real Numbers. Then, you will visit the Properties of Real Numbers such as the Commutative, Associative, Identity, Inverse, and Distributive Properties.
