Fsc Part 1 Mathematics (Complete Solution)

Q2
The operation ⊕ as performed on the set {0,1,2,3} is shown in the adjoinig tabel, show that the set is an Abelian group?

0 1 2 3
0 0 1 2 3
1 1 2 3 0
2 2 3 0 1
3 3 0 1 2

Solution:

Suppose G={0,1,2,3}

(i) The given table show that each element of the table is member of G thus closure law holds.

(ii) ⊕ is associative in G

(iii) Table show that 0 is identity element w.r.t ⊕.

(iv) Since 0+0=0, 1+3=0, 2+2=0, 3+1=0

=> 0-1=0,     1-1=3,        2-1=2,       3-1=1

(v) As the table is symmetric w.r.t to the principal diagonal. Hence commutative law holds.
