# Is this an example of multiplicative equality

good day,

this is the multiplication property of equality rule

a * b = b * c

but is this the multiplicative equality too: a * x = b

thank you so much

have a good day

not exactly, equality allows same operations across the equal, so to demonstrate you have to show one equation equal and then change it, such as:

if a = b then a*c = b*c is multiplicative equality

showing that when you multiply something on one side you do it equally on the other...
