(a) Show that if n is odd, then the axis of each of the “ﬂips” passes through a vertex of the n-gon and the midpoint of the opposite edge. See Figure 2.3.2 on page 107 for the case n D 5 . (b) If n is even and k is even, show that j k±=n D r k j is a rotation about an axis passing through a pair of opposite vertices of the n-gon. (c) Show that if n is even and k is odd, then j k±=n D r k j is a rotation about an axis passing through the midpoints of a pair of opposite edges of the n-gon. See Figure 2.3.2 on page 107 for the case n D 6 . 2.3.6. Find a subgroup of D 6 that is isomorphic to D 3 . 2.3.7. Find a subgroup of D 6 that is isomorphic to the symmetry group of the rectangle....
