Q10  The Cartesian product $A \times A$ has 9 elements among which are found (–1, 0) and
(0,1). Find the set A and the remaining elements of $A \times A$

It is given that Cartesian product A × A having 9 elements among which are found (–1, 0) and (0,1).
Now,
Number of elements in (A× B) = (Number of elements in set A) × (Number of elements in B)
$n(A \times A) = n(A) \times n(A)$
It is given that  $n(A \times A) = 9$
Therefore,
$n(A) \times n(A) = 9$
$\Rightarrow n(A) = 3$
Now,
By definition A × A = {(a, a): a ? A}
Therefore,
-1, 0 and 1 are the elements of set A
Now, because, n(A) = 3 therefore, A = {-1, 0, 1}
Therefore,
the remaining elements of set (A × A) are
(-1,-1), (-1,1), (0,0), (0, -1), (1,1), (1, -1) and (1, 0)
