Abelinization of a group

I want identify the abelianization $Q_{4n}/Q'_{4n}$ with a familiar group where $Q_{4n}$ is the dicyclic group.

Can we regard $\displaystyle Q_{4n}$ as
$\displaystyle \langle a,\ x\ | \ a^{2n}=e, \ x^2=a^{n}, \ xax^{-1}=a^{-1} \rangle$ ?

I think you could try to prove that any commutator of $\displaystyle Q_{4n}$ can be written as $\displaystyle a^{2k},\ k\in\mathbb{N}$.
