The way I remember reflexive, symmetric, and transitive is this: R-S-T (consecutive letters) and 1-2-3 Which stands for this: R -> reflexive property of equality a=a (one quantity is involved) S -> symmetric property of equality if a=b then b=a (two quantities are involved) T -> transitive property of equality if a=b and b=c then a=c (three quantities are involved)
