This is a proof showing that the difference between any two numbers is proportional to their size. Assume x - y = z Knowing that ax - ay = a(x - y) then if ax - ay = bz, where b is an unknown, then: bz = a(x - y) bz = az b = a Mainly I'm wondering if I did any sort of logicy thing wrong, so that I can make sure I know how to do it right next time.
