Using the defining property of the dirac delta function,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex]\int{dx f(x) \delta(x-c)}[/tex]

show that

[tex]\delta(ax)=\frac{1}{|a|}\delta(x)[/tex]

I think all I need to do is make the right u substitutions and it will come out right, but I can't think of how to make the substitutions...after a long time working on this problem.
