You may also answer (for up to 5 points extra credit) ONE additional problem. In this case, please specify which problem is the extra credit problem. All statements require proof or justification. There are 50 points total, plus up to 5 points of extra credit. 1. Let A , B be subgroups of a finite group G. (a) Let AB = { ab : a A,b B } . Prove that if A B = { e } then | AB | = | A | | B | . (b) Show that if A is a normal subgroup of G then AB is closed under compositions G. Remark: In fact, AB is a subgroup in this case, but you only have to prove that it is closed under compositions. (c) Show that if A and B are both normal then AB is normal in G. Note: You just have to prove that it is normal, the subgroup part is covered by part (b). 2. Suppose that G is a group of order 42 .

    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.
