(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Prove that C is a field.

2. Relevant equations

Field Axioms.

3. The attempt at a solution

I know there are 10 field axioms, but is it enough to just say something like:

Let a,b,c be in C

(a+b) + c = a + (b + c)

So satisfies addition associativity, and then go ahead and do all the others?

Just doesn't seem like proof...How else could I go about proving it?
