QUIZ 2 WED., OCT. 6 NAME: Problem 1: (1.5 point) Let A i be sets for i = 1 , 2 , 3 , ..., n . What is the deFnition of the n-fold Cartesian Product of sets A 1 , A 2 ,..., A n ? The n-fold Cartesian product of sets A 1 ,..., A n is given by A 1 × A 2 × · · · × A n = { ( a 1 , a 2 , ..., a n ) | a j A j for j = 1 , 2 , ..., n } .

Unformatted text preview: A has a least element. That is, there exists an element a A such that for all a A , a < a . Problem 3: (2 points) Consider the set of integers, Z . Prove that the multiplicative identity is unique. Proof: Suppose 1 and 1 are both multiplicative identities. Therefore, for all a Z (1) 1 a = a 1 = a, and (2) 1 a = a 1 = a. In particular (1) holds for a = 1 and (2) holds for a = 1 hence 1 = 1 1 = 1 1 = 1 . Therefore the multiplicative identity must be unique. 2...
