Solution

Problem 2
2. Let G be a finite group and a,b two elements of order p prime, and b does not belong to .
Show that G contains at least p^2-1 elements of order p.
Solution

Problem 3
3. Let G be a group of order 120, H a subgroup of order 24 such that there exists a left coset of H (different from H itself) which is equal to a right coset of H. Prove that H is normal in G.
Solution

Problem 4
4. Show that no group of order 192 is simple.
Solution

Problem 5
5. Let G be a finite group and H be a proper subgroup of G. Show that there is an element of G that is not in any conjugate of H. Prove that this result does not hold if G is infinite.
Solution

Problem 6
6. Prove that the groups (R,+) and (R+*,x) are isomorphic. Show that G=(Q+*,x) is a free abelian group, and that there exist infinitely many homomorphisms from G to H=(Q,+). However, show that there exists only one homomorphism from H to G.
