Hello,

I'd like to prove that the category cmon of commutative monoids has binary products.

3. The attempt at a solution

actually i'm aware that i have to use cartesian products

given monoids (M, [tex]\bullet[/tex]m, [tex]e^{}_{m}[/tex]) and (N, [tex]\bullet[/tex]n, [tex]e^{}_{n}[/tex])

it follows that (M[tex]\times[/tex]N) [tex]\times[/tex] (M[tex]\times[/tex]N) [tex]\rightarrow[/tex] M[tex]\times[/tex] N

and ((m,n), (m',n')) |---> (m [tex]\bullet[/tex]m m', n [tex]\bullet[/tex]n n') ....

Thanks in advance for any help!
