Q

# Let ∗′ be the binary operation on the set {1, 2, 3, 4, 5} defined by a ∗′ b = H.C.F. of a and b. Is the operation ∗′ same as the operation ∗ defined in Exercise 4 above? Justify your answer.

Q.5 Let ∗′ be the binary operation on the set $\{1, 2, 3, 4, 5\}$ defined by
$a *' b = H.C.F. \;of\;a\;and\;b$ . Is the operation ∗′ same as the operation ∗ defined

Views

$a *' b = H.C.F. \;of\;a\;and\;b$   for  $a,b \in \{1, 2, 3, 4, 5\}$

The operation table is as shown below:

 $\ast$ 1 2 3 4 5 1 1 1 1 1 1 2 1 2 1 2 1 3 1 1 3 1 1 4 1 2 1 4 1 5 1 1 1 1 5

The operation ∗′ same as the operation ∗ defined in Exercise 4 above.
