Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Because Given is always the first step.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2ok so a.1=a what do u call this property ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2but there is one thing that confuse me in ur question, about this one Symmetric Property of Equality i dont see why its wrong to use it, maybe cause its the same property that u wanna prove ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Im not sure. Its what confused me too...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The answer is Symmetric Property because the basic rule for that one is a=b so b=a In the problem though we're only shown onehalf of the property. Both sides are still equal though due to the given.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay, I wasnt sure what it would be. That makes sense though. Thank you, both of you

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2well thats depend on the axiom system ur working on the question itself wanna u to prove if Symmetric Property of Equality really works ,i'll tell u why : if the reason was symmetric property then why didnt we use it directly to prove a.c=b.c ? got it now ??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yeah, I get it. Makes way more sense

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so the answer is the identity look for how it make more sense

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh wait so its Identity not Symmetry?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I see what you're saying, but the reason I went with symmetric was because of the fact that given is the reason fro a*c=b*c

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2well here what i think : 1.ac=bc given 2.ac.1/c=bc.1/c symmetric property (we can multiply both side with same stuff like a balance) 3. 4. 5. 6. identity XD if we use symmetric directly on 6,then there is no need for this whole proof as we can also say ac=bc given a=b symmetric blah blah .. end .

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That is true, but I think it is because there is a better fit for the others. Even if it makes it all unnecessary.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Like you said it fits better for 2 but that one actually would be the multiplicative identity.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2hmm i think its all about text book and what they trying to teach, its up to u now to decide @glittergurl0101 i would really like to know whats the answer when u got it :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ahhhh...... The answer was identity. I went with symmetry and got it wrong.
