Hi everybody,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

When we have two sets A and B , we define the cartesian product of A and B as the set A*B={(x,y): (x element of A) and (y element of B)}. We also define A*A*...*A (n factors)=A^n. So when we write (A^2)*B, this is the same as A*A*B? I mean, for example (R^2)*R is the same as R*R*R, or ((1,2),3)=(1,2,3) ?

Thanks
