Determine whether the set forms a group with respect to the given operation. (You may assume the operation is associative.) If the set does not form a group, determine which properties fail.The even integers: addition

To determine

Determine whether the below set forms a group with respect to the given operation.

“The even integers; addition”

Explanation

Given: The set of even integers

Formula Used:

The given set forms group if the below three conditions are satisfied

1. The set should be closed with respect to the operation
2. The associative property of the operation should hold true for the elements of set
3. The identity element should exists in the operation for all the elements of set
4. For each element in the set has an inverse.

Calculation:

The set is given as

“All even integers”

Let us suppose two even integers as 4 and 4

Now, find 4
