Addition of Cuts is Commutative
Jump to navigation Jump to search
Let $\alpha$ and $\beta$ be cuts.
Let the operation of $\alpha + \beta$ be the sum of $\alpha$ and $\beta$.
- $\alpha + \beta = \beta + \alpha$
From Rational Addition is Commutative we have that:
- $p + q = q + p$
The result follows.
