    (i) (a,b) * (c,d) = (ac, ad + b) (c,d) * (a,b) = (ca,cb + d) (ac, ad + b) \(\neq\) (ca, cb + d) therefore it is not commutative

    compute (a,b) * ((c,d) * (e,f)) compute ((a,b) * (c,d)) * (e,f) compare the two ordered pairs if they are equal

    (a,b) * ((c,d) * (e,f)) = (a,b) * (ce, cf + d) = (ace, a(cf + d) + b) ((a,b) * (c,d)) * (e,f) = (ac, ad + b) * (e,f) = (ace, acf + (ad + b)) the two ordered pairs are the same, therefore * is associative
