Are the Yangtze River and the Yangzi River the same thing?

Question by scohenscohen: Are the Yangtze River and the Yangzi River the same thing?
Well im studying China and surrounding countries in social studies and I have to locate bodies of water on a map by using another map in my text book. But, I can’t seem to locate it. On the paper it tells me to find “Yangtze River”, but the only thing I see is the Yangtze River, which I was thinking maybe it just has two different spellings. But I’m not sure. Any help would be great!
I meant to put the only thing i can find on the map in the text book is “Yangzi”***
