b) is incorrect. You are trying to prove the Cross Product property so you can't use it in the proof. You have simply multiplied both sides of the equation by the same number $\displaystyle bd$. d) is the associativity of multiplication. e) multiplies numbers by their multiplicative inverses f) multiplies by the multiplicative identity. For 2) you have $\displaystyle {b \over j}=\frac45$ and $\displaystyle {b +8 \over j+8}=\frac67$ which should be straightforward to solve. 3) is entirely similar, having negative signs in place of the plus signs.
