I don't see how you get to mulitiplication this way.

p is inverseFunctional
{ d }  ==  =N p
cardinalty-N  ==  exists p- { d }

q is inversefunctional
cardinality-N  ==  =M q
cardinality-N-times-M  ==  exists r- cardinality-N

> ObjectProperty( <#r>, inverse(<#inv-r>), InverseFunctional)

r is inversefunctional
{ d }  ==  =N-times-M p
		If there is no contradiction then  N = N-times-M
cardinality-N-times-M  == exists r- { d }

I don't see how you get a multiplication out of this.
