Q. 22

Mark the tick aga

According to the question ,

R = {(a, b) : a * b = a + b + ab }

Formula

* is commutative if a * b = b * a

* is associative if (a * b) * c = a * (b * c)

Check for commutative

Consider , a * b = a + b + ab

And , b * a = b + a + ba

Both equations are same and will always be true .

Therefore , * is commutative ……. (1)

Check for associative

Consider , (a * b) * c = (a + b + ab) * c

= a + b + ab + c + (a + b + ab)c

=a + b + c + ab + ac + bc + abc

And , a * (b * c) = a * (b + c + bc)

= a + b + c + bc + a(b + c + bc)

=a +b + c + ab + bc + ac + abc

Both the equation are same and therefore will always be true.

Therefore , * is associative ……. (2)

Now , according to the equations (1) , (2)

Correct option will be (D)
