Question 6

Determine whether the following operation defines a binary operation on the

apostrophe circled dot apostrophe space o n space N space d e f i n e d space b y space a space circled dot space b space equals space a to the power of b space plus space b to the power of a space f o r space a l l space a comma space b space element of space N

Solution 6

We have,

A b = ab + ba for all a, b, ϵ N

Let a ϵ N and b ϵ N

ab ϵ N and ba ϵ N

ab + ba ϵ N

a b ϵ N

Thus, the operation ‘’ defines a binary relation on N

Question 9

Let * be a binary opeartor o the set I of integers, defined by a*b = 2a + b - 3.

find the value of 3*4

Solution 9

It is given that, a*b = 2a + b - 3

now,

3*4 = 2 × 3 + 4 - 3

      = 10 - 3

Question 7

Check the commutativity and associativity of each of the following binary operations:

 

 

'' on Q defined by ab = a2 + b2 for all a, b ϵ Q.

Solution 7

'' on Q defined by ab = a2 + b2 for all a, b ϵ Q

 

Commutativity:

For a, b ϵ Q

ab = a2 + b2 = b2 + a2 = ba

So, '' is commutative on Q.

 

Associativity:

For a, b, c ϵ Q

(ab) ⊙c = (a2 + b2) ⊙c = (a2 + b2)2 + c2

a⊙(b ⊙c) =a ⊙( b2 +c2)= a2 +(b2 + c2 )2

(ab) ⊙c ≠ a⊙(b ⊙c)

So, '' is not associative on Q.

Question 16

Check the commutativity and associativity of the following binary operation :

apostrophe asterisk times apostrophe space on space straight Q comma space defined space by space straight a asterisk times straight b space equals space ab over 4 space for space all space straight a comma space straight b comma space element of space straight N.

Solution 16

Question 17

Check the commutativity and associativity of each of the following binary operations:

 

 

'*' on Z defined by a * b = a + b - ab for all a, b ϵ Z.

Solution 17

'*' on Q defined by a*b = a + b - ab for all a, b ϵ Z

 

Commutativity:

For a, b ϵ Z

a*b = a + b - ab = b + a - ba = b*a

So, '*' is commutative on Z.

 

Associativity:

For a, b, c ϵ Z

(a*b) *c = (a + b - ab) *c

= a + b - ab + c + ac + bc - abc

 

a*(b*c )= a*( b + c - bc)

= a + b +c - bc + ab + ac + - abc

 

(a*b) *c ≠ a*(b*c )

So, '*' is not associative on Z.

 

Question 18

Check the commutativity and associativity of each of the following binary operations:

 

 

'*' on Q defined by a * b = gcd (a, b) for all a, b ϵ N.

Solution 18

'*' on Q defined by a*b = gcd (a, b) for all a, b ϵ N

 

Commutativity:

For a, b ϵ Q

a*b = gcd (a, b) = gcd (b, a) = b*a

So, '*' is commutative on N.

 

Associativity:

For a, b, c ϵ N

(a*b) *c = (gcd (a, b)) *c

= gcd (a, b, c)

=a*( gcd (b, c))

=a*(b*c)

 

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

So, '*' is associative on N.

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

                                     = a + b + ab + c + ac + bc + abc
