Is inverse, converse, and contrapositive of a algebra statement true?

Consider following statement:

If x = y, then 5x = 5y                                 TRUE
Inverse:  If x != y, then 5x != 5y                TRUE
Converse:  If 5x = 5y, then x = y               TRUE
Contrapositive:  If 5x != 5y, then x != y     TRUE


This is high school geometry question.

I'm not a student.  I'm refreshing my geometry skills so I can help a student.

For any well defined algebraic statements

Statement1 = Statement2     then  X*Statement1 =X* Statement2

Statement1 != Statement2     then  X*Statement1 !=X* Statement2    provided X! = 0

 X*Statement1 = X* Statement2    then Statement1 = Statement2    provided X! = 0

 X*Statement1 != X* Statement2    then Statement1 = Statement2

Did you mean to say  Statement1 != Statement2
