Q:
# Which property justifies this statement?If x=−2, then 5x=−10.A.Multiplication Property of EqualityB.Transitive Property of EqualityC.Symmetric Property of EqualityD.Subtraction Property of Equality

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:Correct option is:A.Multiplication Property of EqualityStep-by-step explanation:The Multiplication Property of Equality states that if you multiply both sides of an equation by the same number, the sides remain equal (i.e. equality is preserved).Here, we are given a equality:x= -2Now, on multiplying both sides by 5, the equality will be preservedi.e. 5x= -2×5i.e. 5x= -10Hence, Correct option is:A.Multiplication Property of Equality
