## Main Question or Discussion Point

So if we have sets A X B where A is (a_n, b_m) and C X D where C is (c_o, d_p), the cartesian product of the sets is (A X B) X (C X D) [(a_n, b_m, c_o, d_p)]. Is this correct? And thus, do parenthesis matter at all in Cartesian products? What about order? Is (a_n, b_m) equivalent to (b_m, a_n)?
