Two friends & I putted our money 2gether for a road trip. When we got back, we had $45 left. If we split it evenly, how much will we each get? If I divide this way: 45/3=$15 Dividing this way: 3/15=3/15=1/5!

How do you prove a Ring to be commutative?

To prove a ring is commutative, one must show that for any two elements of the ring their product does not depend on the order in which you multiply them. For example, if p and q are any two elements of your ring then p*q must equal q*p in order for the ring to be commutative. Note that not every ring is commutative, in some rings p*q does not equal q*p for arbitrary q and p (for example, the ring of 2x2 matrices).
