Show that f(x,y)=x(-1)^y is homomorphism from the direct product group ℝ(positive) ×ℤ2 to the group ℝ*.

(need to show that f((a,b)(c,d))=f(a,b)f(c,d), is it right? but I can't get them equal to each other)

Take then

I'm assuming is the group of postitive real numbers with multiplication as operation.
