Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Is this true? Explain why. \[4(\frac{ 1 }{ 4 }) = 1\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0"A number which is, 4, multiplied by its reciprocal, 1/4, is equal to 1." Is that how your write in proofing?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[a \cdot a^{1}=1 \text{ for all } a \neq 0\] This is just the multiplicative inverse property

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok so what axiom system your working on ??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm working on all types of axiom. From the 5 basics of axiom of equality to the other axioms. I'm just wondering on how could explain it. I saw this material in the internet: http://www.mathhands.com/046/hw/046c01s06ns.pdf Under the "Some questions to think about". Do you have any idea how to explain it in a way the author wants it to be?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0In addition to that question, I can't seem to find any other explanation or differences between the 5 basic axioms of Algebra ( Reflexive, Symmetric, Transitive, Additive, and Multiplicative.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so I guess you are looking for something more then "example: 1/3 is the multiplicative inverse of 3 so 1/3*3=1 or 3*1/3=1" ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So if the Prof asked me, "True, False, WDKY (we don’t know yet)) \[3(\frac{ 1 }{ 3 }) =3\] Do you know why? exp lain." How will I form my answer?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2that would be false because 3*1/3=1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2we already mentioned the multiplicative inverse property above \[a \neq 0\] \[a (\frac{1}{a})=1 \text{ since } a \text{ and } \frac{1}{a} \text{ are multplicative inverses of each other }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Maybe, I was expecting a complicated explanation. T.T If it's that simple, then okay. Thank you very much.
