a\equiv R\: \: \: \: b\equiv R\: \: \: \: \: \: given\: \: a*b=\sqrt{a^2+b^2}

\Rightarrow a^2+b^2\equiv R

\Rightarrow \sqrt{a^2+b^2}\equiv R holds the closure property

Hence it is a Binary Equation .

Associative:

To Prove: a*b= \sqrt{a^2+b^2}\equiv R

\left (a*b \right )*c= a*(b*c)

\left ( \sqrt{a^2+b^2} \right )*c=a*(\sqrt{b^2+c^2})

\sqrt{a^2+b^2+c^2}=\sqrt{a^2+b^2+c^2}

\because LHS=RHS

It is associative
