## Homework Statement

I was asked to prove the axioms of a field.

so, if we look at the first one:

commutativity: a+b=b+a and a*b=b*a where a and b belong in the set of the field

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

it's tempting to just substitute values but i know this is the wrong approach since this wouldnt prove the axiom for all values in the set. so im stuck.
