Example 2 If P = { a, b, c} and Q = {r}, find the sets P × Q and Q × P. Are these two products equal? P = { a, b, c } and Q = {r} P × Q = {a, b, c} × {r} = {(a, r), (b , r), (c , r)} Q × P = {r} × {a, b , c} = {(r, a), (r, b), (r, c)} Here, P × Q ≠ Q × P Since the corresponding first and second elements are not equal, hence the two ordered pairs are not equal.
