Math 113 (Bernd Sturmfels), Midterm Exam # 2 Tuesday, August 1, 9:00 a.m.–10:00 a.m. Please start by writing your name and your student ID on the cover of your blue book. This exam is closed book . Do not use any notes, calculators, cell phones etc. Show all your work, and write full sentences if time permits. Each problem is worth 20 points, for a total of 100 points. (1) Classify all groups of order 65 up to isomorphism. (2) Show that the alternating group A 4 is generated by the two simple 3-cycles (123) and (234). (3) The ring of integers Z is a principal ideal domain, so each ideal in Z is generated by a single element. Consider the ideals I = h 12 ,
