anonymous one year ago Which of the following BEST summarizes how to use the multiplication property of equality to isolate the variable p below? -1/2p=4 A. divide only the right side of the equation by 2 B. multiply only the right side of the equation by 2 C. divide both sides of the equation by –2 D. multiply both sides of the equation by –2

do you know what "multiplication property of equality" means? :)

2. anonymous

its the property stating that multiplying or dividing both sides of an equation by y the same value right?

3. butterflydreamer

it basically states that when BOTH sides of an equation are multiplied by the same number, the remaining expressions are equal :)

4. butterflydreamer

so we have: |dw:1436367734469:dw|

5. butterflydreamer

so what does $1 \div -\frac{ 1 }{ 2 } = ?$
