Ordered Pair

An Ordered pair consists of two objects or elements in a given fixed order.

For example when A and B are any two sets, a pair (a,b) where a ЄA and b ЄB is an ordered pair. The fixed order comes from the two sets A and B and the first element is from A and the second element is from B.

Equality of ordered pairs: Two ordered pairs (a1,b1) and (a2,b2) are equal to if a1 = a2 and b1 = b2.
