    Yes

    Step-by-step explanation:

    -1x is a short notation for - 1 * x. the "-" can stand for - 1

    So it would be (-1) * (1) * x

    -x is also - 1 * x

    By the identity property of multiplication, a number x 1 remains the same number.

    So it would be - 1 * x, which is the same as - 1 * x, so they're equal.
