Multiplication Property of Equality

The Multiplication Property of Equality states that multiplying each side of an equation by the same number yields an equivalent equation.

If a=b,a = b, then ac=bc.a \cdot c = b \cdot c.

This property can be used when solving equations to eliminate denominators, since multiplication is the inverse operation of division.
