What is the Multiplication Property of Equality?

Multiplicative Property of Equality
The formal name for the property of equality that allows one to multiply the same quantity by both sides of an equation. This, along with the additive property of equality, is one of the most commonly used properties for solving equations.
Property:
If a = b then a·c = b·c.
Example:
x/5 = 7
(x/5)·5 = 7·5
x = 35
