(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Statement:

One of the key elements in being in what people callgroupis that elements must be associative.

So this means if we take any three elements from what we propose to be a group, they should be associative,

a*(b*C) = (a*b)*c

Question:

Suppose we do have a group with elements a, b, c.

Would the following be true,

a*(b*C) = (a*b)*c = (c*a)*b
