Example 45 Determine which of the following binary operations on the set R are associative and which are commutative. (a) a * b = 1 a, b R Check commutative * is commutative if a * b = b * a Since a * b = b * a a, b R * is commutative Check associative * is associative if (a * b) * c = a * (b * c) Since (a * b) * c = a * (b * c) a, b, c R * is an associative binary operation Example 45 Determine which of the following binary operations on the set R are associative and which are commutative. (b) a b = (a + b) 2 a, b R Check commutative * is commutative if a * b = b * a Since a * b = b * a a, b R * is commutative Check associative * is associative if (a * b) * c = a * (b * c) Since (a * b) * c a * (b * c) a, b, c R * is not an associative binary operation
