Claire correctly solved the proportion StartFraction x over 4 EndFraction = StartFraction 36 over 16 EndFraction for x by using cross products to get the equation 16 x = 144 and then dividing both sides by 16 to get x = 9. She showed that she can use cross products to solve the proportion because she gets the same answer if the solves it as shown. StartFraction x over 4 EndFraction = StartFraction 36 over 16 EndFraction. StartFraction x over 4 EndFraction times 4 = StartFraction 36 over 16 EndFraction times 4. x = StartFraction 144 over 16 EndFraction. X = 9. What property allowed her to go from StartFraction x over 4 EndFraction = StartFraction 36 over 16 EndFraction to StartFraction x over 4 EndFraction times 4 = StartFraction 36 over 16 EndFraction times 4? addition property of equality subtraction property of equality multiplication property of equality division property of equality
