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

In most books that I saw, the set of real numbers under the usual sum and product is considered as a Field and say that's by the field axioms. But I have surprised when I have seen, it is a theorem. The question, are these axioms? or can they be proved?

Thank you very much.
