Abstract algebra?
yep
Bleargh I don't know how to solve this. I will call upon @TuringTest and @FoolForMath for help. :P

Although presumably if a*a=e, a is an identity element, and a group of identity elements are abelian? I don't know; I might be talking out of my retricehere.
If I may suggest a better place to ask advanced questions, http://math.stackexchange.com/ . The average advanced user here is probably a college math student. :P Abstract algebra isn't for everyone.
ok yea that web is another level.. let me see if they could help
Okay, this wasn't hard, \( a*a=e \implies a=a^{-1} \) similarly \( b=b^{-1} \) So, \[ a*b=(a*b)^{-1} =b^{-1} *a^{-1} =b*a. \]
[QED]
