(b) ill in the multiplication table for G . (c) Is G isomorphic to Z 4 ? Is G isomorphic to Z 2 Z 2 ? (4) Explain why each of the following pairs of groups are (or are not) isomorphic. (a) Z 6 and Z 2 Z 3 . (b) S 3 and Z 6 . (c) S 4 and S 3 . (d) S 2 and Z 2 . 1 2 PRACTICE MIDTERM FOR MAT 312 (5) Consider the permutation S 8 defned by = (126)(8241)(5368).
