Unformatted text preview: Every proper subgroup of S 4 is cyclic. Solution. False. 2.53 Let H be a subgroup of a f nite group G , and let a 1 H , . . . , a t H be a list of all the distinct cosets of H in G . Prove the following statements without using the equivalence relation on G de f ned by a b if b 1 a H . (i) Prove that each g G lies in the coset gH , and that gH = a i H for some i . Conclude that G = a 1 H a t H . Solution. Absent. (ii) If a , b G and aH bH = , prove that aH = bH . Conclude that if i = j , then a i H a j H = . Solution. Absent....
