Math 4124 Monday, April 4 Solutions to Second Test 1. By the fundamental homomorphism theorem, G / K = Z / 2 Z × Z / 2 Z . From the sub- group correspondence theorem, the number of subgroups of G containing K equals the number of subgroups of G / K . Therefore we need to determine the number of subgroups of Z / 2 Z × Z / 2 Z . Two of the subgroups are 1 and Z / 2 Z × Z / 2 Z . All other

### What students are saying

• 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.
