# DM-Groups and Lattice-Q7

For a positive number c, consider the open interval $G = (-c, c)$ of real numbers. For $x, y \in G$, define

$x*y:=\frac{x+y}{1+xy/c^2}$

Which one of the following statements is true?

(A).G is monoid but not group

(B).G is a group but not abelian

(C).G is semigroup but not a monoid

(D).G is an abelian group

what will be the identity element?
Zero
because smallest positive number is always greater than zero.
can you show how u did ? that would be very helpful
solution anyone???...
Let, $x, y \in G$
$\therefore x * y = \frac {x + y}{1 + \frac {xy}{c^2}} = \frac {y + x}{1 + \frac {yx}{c^2}} = y * x$
$\Rightarrow x * y = y * x$
Therefore, $G$ is an Abelian Group.
Also, the identity element in $G$ is $0$; and the inverse of an element $x \in G$ is $-x$.
