# Fractional Proof Note $1$

Let's prove that:

$\frac{x}{100}$ $\times 100 = x$

$\frac{x}{100}$ $\times 100$

$\frac{100x}{100}$

$\frac{10x}{10}$

$\frac{1x}{1}$

$x$

Therefore, $\frac{x}{100}$ $\times 100 = x$ Note by Yajat Shamji

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

• Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
• Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
• Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.
• Stay on topic — we're all here to learn more about math and science, not to hear about your favorite get-rich-quick scheme or current world events.

Maybe simple? Not quite...

$\frac{x}{100} × 100$

$= x × 100^{-1} × 100^1$

$= x × 100^{1-1}$

$= x × 100^0$

$= x × 1$

$= \boxed{x}$

More simpler :  $\frac{x}{100} \times 100 = x$

A simpler one: $\dfrac{x}{100}\times100=\dfrac{100x}{100}=\dfrac{100}{100}\times x=1\times x=x$
