name the property illustrated in the equation
8(2q+1)=4 then 2(2q+1)=1
You have divided both sides of the equation by 4, which is equivalent to multiplying both sides of the equation by 1/4. Multiplying both sides of an equation by the same number is known as the multiplication property of equality. It can be summarized as: If a = b, then a*c = b*c.
