Suppose P,P' are 3-Sylow subgroup, and let Q be their intersection and N the normalizer of Q. Problem: Explain why is the order of N divisible by 9 ? Thanks for your help.

For example $A_4$ has distinct Sylow 3-subgroups, e.g. $P=\{e, (123), (132)\}$ and $P'=\{e, (124), (142)\}$, but $|A_4|=12$ so no subgroup of $A_4$ can have an order divisible by $9$.

Then: $9\mid |N_G(P \cap P')|$. In this (special) case, we have that $P,P'$ are abelian, so that: $P \subseteq N(P \cap P')$, since any subgroup of $P$ (or $P'$) is normal in $P$ (respectively, $P'$). The divisibility conclusion then follows by Lagrange. In fact, we can generalize Olinguito's counter-example to any group whose Sylow 3-subgroups have order 3. Thanks from Olinguito
