(1) (3.10) How many subgroups of order 4 does the group D4 have?

Proof. This one is tricky. As I pointed out in an email message, in Example 15

there are a list of subgroups of D4 , three of which have order 3. These subgroups are

all the centralizers of the different elements of the group. The question is, are there

any others? The answer to that is no. The hard part is to see why are there no others.

Note that there are two elements of order 4, namely R90 and R270 . They each

generate the same subgroup of order 4, which is on the list. All other elements of D4

have order 2. Also notice that all three subgroups of order 4 on the list contain R180 ,

which commutes with all elements of the group. Now let H = {e, a, b, c} be a subgroup

of order 4 not on the list. Thus the elements a, b, c all have order 2 (for if H contained

an element of order 4, it would equal a subgroup on the list). Furthermore, these

elements must all commute with each other, otherwise we would get a fifth element.

To see why, suppose that ab = c, while ba 6= c, Then ba is a new element not already in

H. Hence all pairs of elements in H commute. Now one of a, b or c is not a rotation,

otherwise H = {R90 , R180 , R270 , R0 } which is on the list. Say a is not a rotation. Then

H = C(a), which again means H is on the list, and we are done.

(2) (3.22) Show U(14) = h3i = h5i. Hence U(14) is cyclic. Is U(14) = h11i?

Proof. This is strictly brute force. We have U(14) = {1, 3, 5, 9, 11, 13}. We take

powers of 3 to get:

31 = 3, 32 = 9, 33 = 27 = 13, 34 = 13 3 = 39 = 11, 35 = 33 = 5, 36 = 1.

This is all of U(14), whence 3 generates the group. In a similar fashion we have that

{51 = 552 = 11, 53 = 13, 54 = 9, 55 = 3, 56 = 1} = U(14).

Thus both 3 and 5 generate the group. On the other hand

{111 = 11, 112 = 121 = 9, 113 = 99} = 1 6= U(14).

So 11 does not generate.

(3) (3.24) Suppose that n is an even positive integer and H is a subgroup of Zn . Prove

that either every member of H is even or exactly half are even.

Proof. The key is that if n is even, then the sum of two even integers modulo n and

the sum of two odd mod n is even. To see why let a and b be even or both odd integers,

then a + b is even. Then using the division algorithm we can write a + b = nq + r with

0 r < n. Since a + b is even and nq is even, r must be even as claimed. Similarly the

sum of an even and an odd mod n is again odd.

Now let H be a subgroup. If all the elements of H are even, were

S done. Otherwise

let E and O denote the even and the odd elements of H, so E O = H. Let a O

and define a map E O via x 7 x + a. Then adding a to an element also defines a

map in the reverse direction. Clearly these maps are inverses of each other, since x + 2a

has the same parity as x. Thus the two sets E and O have the same order, and we are

done.

(4) (4.22) Show that a group of order 3 is cyclic.

Proof. We will use brute force. Let G = {e, a, b} (e the identity element). It will

suffice to show that a2 = b, for then a3 = e (the only element left) and so a generates

G. Clearly a2 6= a, for that would imply a = e, which it is not. Now suppose that

a2 = e. But we also know that ab is in G, and it cannot equal either a or b (by the

cancelation property). Thus ab = e and so a2 = ab. Therefore again by cancelation we

have e = b, a contradiction. Thus a2 = b and so a is a generator.

Proof: U (15) = {1, 2, 4, 7, 8, 11, 13, 14}. We will examine the cyclic subgroup gen-

erated by each element of G.

h1i = {1}

h2i = {2, 4, 8, 1}

h4i = {4, 1}

h7i = {7, 4, 13, 1}

h8i = {8, 4, 2, 1} = h2i

h11i = {11, 1}

h13i = {13, 132 = 169 = 4, 7, 1} = h7i

h14i = {14, 1}

Some of the subgroups listed above are duplicates. However, there are six distinct

cyclic subgroups; namely the subgroups generated by each of 1, 2, 4, 7, 11, 14.
