By the definition of the Cartesian product, P $ \times $ Q = {(a, r), (b, r), (c, r)} and Q $ \times $ P = {(r, a), (r, b), (r, c)} Since, by the definition of equality of ordered pairs, the pair (a, r) is not equal to the pair (r, a), we conclude that P $ \times $ Q $ \neq $ Q × P.
However, the number of elements in each set will be the same.
