### Quasigroups extracted from the rational numbers and division

Consider a quasigroup $(Q,/)$, that is, Q is a set and for $\forall a,b\in Q$ there are unique solutions to the equations $x/a=b$ and $a/y=b$. How to find a maximal set of independent representants of ...
N. Bourbaki formally defines the free magma $M(X)$ over a set $X$. However, it does not define the free unital magma over $X$, which I am denoting by $M^{\ast}(X)$ (maybe you know some more common ...
