## Classify groups of order 6

Solution to Abstract Algebra by Dummit & Foote 3rd edition Chapter 4.2 Exercise 4.2.10 Solution: Let $G$ be a nonabelian group of order 6. We claim that if $x$ is…

## Subgroups of finite index force the existence of normal subgroups of bounded index

Solution to Abstract Algebra by Dummit & Foote 3rd edition Chapter 4.2 Exercise 4.2.8 Solution: $G$ acts on the cosets $G/H$ by left multiplication. Let $\lambda : G \rightarrow S_{G/H}$…

## The quaternion group is not a subgroup of Symmetric group for any n less than 8

Solution to Abstract Algebra by Dummit & Foote 3rd edition Chapter 4.2 Exercise 4.2.7 Solution: (1) $Q_8$ is a subgroup of $S_8$ via the left regular representation. (2) Now suppose…

## Symmetric group acts on the n-fold direct product of a group by permuting the factors

Solution to Abstract Algebra by Dummit & Foote 3rd edition Chapter 5.1 Exercise 5.1.8 Solution: First we show that this mapping $\psi : \pi \mapsto \varphi_\pi$ is a homomorphism. Let…

## Finite direct products are isomorphic up to permutation of the factors

Solution to Abstract Algebra by Dummit & Foote 3rd edition Chapter 5.1 Exercise 5.1.7 Solution: We need to show that $\varphi_\pi$ is a bijective homomorphism. Homomorphism: Let $g = (g_i)$…
