i don't think they're equal

a/4=1/8

a8=4

a=4/8

a=1/2

32a=8

a=8/32

a=1/4

Reference:just meThey aren't equal.

If you solve for a in the first equation you find that a = 1/2

if the second equation were equal you should be able to plug in 1/2 for a, and the equation stays valid.

In this case if you plug in 1/2 for a in the second equation you get 16 = 8 which is obv wrong.

a/4 = 1/8 a = 1/2

32a = 8 a = 1/4

No way are they equivalent.
