The statement is true.

Work Step by Step

Solve for $z$ in the given equation by doing the following steps: (1) Multiply $z$ to both sides. $z \cdot y = z \cdot \dfrac{kx}{z} \\yz = kx$ (2) Divide by $y$ on both sides of the equation: $\dfrac{yz}{y} = \dfrac{kx}{y} \\z=\dfrac{kx}{y}$ Thus, the given statement is true.
