For example, R90 and R270 are inverses of each other, and H is its own inverse. The term inverse is a descriptive one, for if A and B are inverses of each other, then B “undoes” whatever A “does,” in the sense that A and B taken together in either order produce R0, representing no change. Another striking feature 32 Groups of the table is that every element of D4 appears exactly once in each row and column. This feature is something that all groups must have, and, indeed, it is quite useful to keep this fact in mind when constructing the table in the first place.

Otherwise, we say the group is non-Abelian. Thus far, we have illustrated, by way of D4, three of the four conditions that define a group—namely, closure, existence of an identity, and existence of inverses. The remaining condition required for a group is associativity; that is, (ab)c 5 a(bc) for all a, b, c in the set. To be sure that D4 is indeed a group, we should check this equation for each of the 83 5 512 possible choices of a, b, and c in D4. In practice, however, this is rarely done! Here, for example, we simply observe that the eight motions are functions and the operation is function composition.
