State whether the statements are True or False.

a ÷ ( –1) = – a

Answer :

Take Left Hand Side of the equation.

Left Hand side can be written as LHS.


LHS = a ÷ (-1)


We can further solve it as,


LHS = -(a ÷ 1) [ minus can be taken out as it won’t affect the equation]


LHS = -a [ a ÷ 1 = a/1 = a] …(i)


Take Right Hand Side of the equation.


We can write Right Hand Side as RHS.


RHS = -a …(ii)


Now, comparing equations (i) and (ii), we get


LHS = -a & RHS = -a


This clearly shows that, LHS = RHS


Thus, this is a true statement.
