If N is cyclic, prove that every subgroup of N is also normal in G.

If it's isomorphic to , let f a homomorphism that is an isomorphism when restricted to N. Let M be a subgroup of N. . This is equal to . Lets assume it isn't and obtain a contradiction. If , then its product with itself would be always 1. then there would be a subgroup of order 2 of Z, which is impossible. If the product with itself ever difered from i.k, it would not constitute a subgroup. Try doing the finite case.
