# Identity Property of Multiplication

The Identity property of multiplication for real Numbers states that, there exist a real number 1 such that if we multiply any real number to that number, the number remains unchanged.

a * 1 = a

The identity property of multiplication can be explained by the following examples:
1. 4 * 1 = 4
2. 2.7 * 1 = 2.7
3. 11 * 1 = 11
4. $\frac{3}{4}$ * 1 = $\frac{3}{4}$
Another thing to be remembered is that when a real number is multiplied to its multiplicative inverse we obtain the multiplicative identity.
