# Definition:Multiplicative Group of Positive Rational Numbers

## Definition

The multiplicative group of positive rational numbers $\left({\Q_{> 0}, \times}\right)$ is the set of (strictly) positive rational numbers under the operation of multiplication.

Thus rational multiplication is:

Well-defined on $\Q_{> 0}$
Closed on $\Q_{> 0}$
Associative on $\Q_{> 0}$
Commutative on $\Q_{> 0}$
The identity of $\left({\Q_{> 0}, \times}\right)$ is $1$
Each element of $\left({\Q_{> 0}, \times}\right)$ has an inverse.
