my question is can you multiply a row by a constant to clear a fraction at any time so long as you end up in row echelon form. no matter what operations you do the result in row echelon form will be unique?

i am checking my work with a software and when i do fraction free result it comes up with a different Gauss elimination then i do. but then when i put all the pivots to 1 for row echelon its the same result. is this going to give me problems in other thing? maybe where a Gauss elimination has to be unique?
