1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Using only the field axioms, prove that if x,y ε R and x = y then wx = wy. 2. Relevant equations http://mathworld.wolfram.com/FieldAxioms.html 3. The attempt at a solution The solution to this can be solved within 2 lines or so using the field axiom inverses/multiplications ,however, this is one of a couple of assignment questions and it seems a little too easy? Am I thinking about this question correctly?
