1. Show that aH and H have the same cardinality by exhibiting a bijection between the two sets. (Similarly, one can show that Ha and H have the same cardinality, so aH and Ha always have the same cardinality.) I've never actually demonstrated bijections between cosets and subgroups before, how would I go about this? 2. Show, by means of an example, that aH is not necessarily equal to Ha. (Hint: it has to be a noncommutative group.) Would any noncommutative group work for this? Apologies, I can't get my intuition around for this problem
