Please help me to prove the following problem: Let $f\subset E$ be a Galois extension and assume that $E=F(\alpha)$ with $\alpha^n\in F$. Let $G=Gal(E/F)$. Show that $G$ has a cyclic normal subgroup $N$ of order dividing $n$ such that $G/N$ is abelian and has order dividing $\phi(n)$. Thanks. Last edited by skipjack; June 24th, 2018 at 07:21 AM.
