#### Solution

$\text{We have to verify that} x \times (y \times z) = (x \times y) \times z .$
$x = \frac{1}{2}, y = \frac{5}{- 4}, z = \frac{- 7}{4}$
$x \times (y \times z) = \frac{1}{2} \times (\frac{5}{- 4} \times \frac{- 7}{4}) = \frac{1}{2} \times \frac{35}{16} = \frac{35}{32}$
$(x \times y) \times z = (\frac{1}{2} \times \frac{5}{- 4}) \times \frac{- 7}{4} = \frac{5}{- 8} \times \frac{- 7}{4} = \frac{35}{32}$
$\therefore \frac{1}{2} \times (\frac{5}{- 4} \times \frac{- 7}{4}) = (\frac{1}{2} \times \frac{5}{- 4}) \times \frac{- 7}{4}$
$\text{Hence verified .}$
