We prove that if A is a C-algebra, then for each aA, Aa={xA/xa} is itself a C-algebra and is isomorphic to the quotient algebra A/θa of A where θa={(x,y)A×A/ax=ay}. If A is C-algebra with T, we prove that for every aB(A), the centre of A, A is isomorphic to Aa×Aa and that if A is isomorphic A1×A2, then there exists aB(A) such that A1 is isomorphic Aa and A2 is isomorphic to Aa. Using this decomposition theorem, we prove that if a,bB(A) with ab=F, then Aa is isomorphic to Ab if and only if there exists an isomorphism φ on A such that φ(a)=b.
