    The correct answer would be C. We know this because we can divide. r=st and if we divide by s, we get t=r/s which is an example, so it tells us that it cannot be B. D cannot be the option because multiplication is associative. To eliminate the next one, just take r=st and divide by t. Once you do that, you get S=r/t, which gives you A. By the elimination process, you now know that C is not equal to r=st. You can use the process of elimination at first, but the more you work with this, it will just come naturally!
