Subtraction Property of Equality

The Subtraction Property of Equality states that subtracting the same number from each side of an equation yields an equivalent equation.

If a=b,a = b, then ac=bc.a - c = b - c.

This property can be used when solving equations to eliminate an addition, since subtraction is the inverse operation of addition.
