on A , defined by (a, b) * (c , d) = ( ac , ad + b) . Show that
(i) ‘*’ is not commutative (ii) ‘*’ is associative
(iii The Identity element w.r.t ‘*’ is ( 1 , 0)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1(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
