The closure property for addition means that if any two
elements of a set are added then the sum is also in the set.

The closure property for multiplication means that if any two
elements of a set are multiplied then the product is also in the
set.
The Natural Numbers are closed for multiplication. a x b = c
If a and b are Natural Numbers, then c will also be a Natural
Number.       2 x 5 = 10
