# Providing Proof about Integers and Rationals

Prove the cancellation law for integers: If a, b, c are integers such that ac=bc and c is non zero, then a=b.

Hint for proof* use the cancellation law: Let a, b, c be natural numbers such that ac=bc and c is non zero, then a=b

Use the trichotomy of integers.
