Answer to Problem 43E

Is proved that |ab|=|a||b|

Explanation of Solution

Given information: Equation |ab|=|a||b|

Formula Used:

If |x|=a , then x=±a and x=a2

Calculation:

Equation is given as

  |ab|=|a||b|

Consider left hand side of the equation,

  |ab|=a2b2|ab|=a2×b2|ab|=|a|×|b||ab|=|a||b|

Thus, left hand side of equation is equal to right hand side of equation

Conclusion:

Hence, proved that |ab|=|a||b|
