No, it is not.

These are properties of algebraic structures with binary operations such as addition and/or subtraction defined on the set.The identity property, refers to a unique element of the set with special properties with respect to an operation.The commutative property states that the order of the operands does not matter. There are many algebraic structures where this property does not hold. The set of numbers with the operation subtraction or division do not have this property.The associative property states that the order in which a repeated operation is carried out does not matter.The distributive property is applicable when there are two binary operations defined on the set.
