Dene the set G n by G n = { g n  g G } . (a) Prove that G n is a subgroup of G . (b) Let D 3 be the dihedral group of rotations and reections of an equilateral triangle. Show that ( D 3 ) 3 is not a subgroup of D 3 . Hint : What elements of D 3 are in ( D 3 ) 3 ? 4. (16 pts.) Let G be the set of complex numbers of absolute value 1. Recall from 20B : (You may nd this helpful.) Complex numbers of absolute value 1 in polar coordinates have r = 1 and arbitrary angle . They can be written as e i . Also e 2 i = 1 and e ri e si = e ( r + s ) i . (a) Prove that G is a group under multiplication. (b) For all integers n > 0, nd a subgroup of G of order n . END OF EXAM...
