Suppose I wind up with the relation(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex]f(x)\delta (x-x')=g(x)\delta (x-x')[/tex]

true for all x'.

Can I safely conclude that f(x) = g(x) (for all x)? Or am I overlooking something? this is a little too close to dividing both sides by zero for comfort.
