It is given that be a binary operation on the set Q of rational numbers is defined as

a b =


For a, b ϵ Q, we get,


a * b = = b * a


the operation is commutative.


For a, b, c ϵ Q, we get,


(a * b) * c =


a * (b * c) = a *


(a * b) * c = a * (b * c)


Therefore, the operation * is associative.
