Which equation illustrates the division property of equality?
A. d x 4 = 32
d x 4 / 4 = 32 / 4
d = 8
B. d  4 = 32
d  4 + 4 = 32 + 4
d = 36
C. d / 4 = 32
d / 4 x 4 = 32 x 4
d = 128
D. d + 4 = 32
d + 4  4 = 32  4
d = 28

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1in more common language, you might say "divide both sides by ______" (replace the blank with a number or expression)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if we start with d x 4 = 32 we divide both sides by 4 to isolate d this is using the division property of equality

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0They all come out as equal but C is the only one that is dividing. A is multiplication, B. is subtraction and D is adding.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1what you are showing (in choice C) is the multiplicative property of equality

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you don't start with dividing division is the second step

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So the division property of equality starts with the opposite, which would be multiplication.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yeah because the goal is to undo the multiplication
