(24 points, 8 points apiece) Find the following. (a) The remainder r when 2953 — 103 is written in the form 19- 9 + r with O s r S 9. (b) (1, 2,3,4) (2,4, 5T1, expressed as a product of disjoint cycles in S6. (0) The order of the cyclic subgroup ((1,2)(3,4)(5,6,7)) of S10. 2. (36 points; 9 points each.) For each of the items listed below, either give an example, or give a brief reason why no example exists. (If you give an example, you do not have to prove that it has the property stated.) _ (a) An integer x such that x a 27 (mod 100) and x E 59 (mod 101). (You need not write it out explicitly; you may instead giVe an arithmetic expression whose value must have that property.) 03) An element of order 10 in 89.. (c) An element of order 2 in a ﬁnite group of odd order. (d) An isomorphism 1;! between Z3 and a subgroup of S3. 3. (20 points) Deﬁne what is meant by a group (G, -). (You need not use the exact wording of the deﬁnition in the text as modiﬁed in my corrections; but for full credit your answer must clearly express all the conditions in that deﬁnition, and should avoid the type of poor wording that my corrections changed.) 4. (20 points) Let G be a group. Show that for all a, [3, CE G the equation axb = c has a unique solution in G. (This means showing both that an element x exists which satisﬁes the equation, and that there is only one such element.) ...

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
