We are supposed to prove this and we can use Thm 8.3 to do it, which is: If the a has order k mod n, then a^h has order k/gcd(h,k) I know this is probably simple to most of you, but for some reason I am getting stuck when trying to write out the proof... Thanks

Nevermind, I figured it out. Sorry to waste anyone's time!
