Not necessarily. If the cis molecule has its substituents in equitorial positions, it would be more stable than a trans molecule with a substituent in an axial position and a substituent in an equitorial position.
Oh, I see. Yes, that would be correct too. I guess it depends where the substituents are placed. What I said would apply to a molecule like 1,3-dimethylcyclohexane, while yours would apply to a molecule like 1,4-dimethylcyclohexane.
