Math 3124 Tuesday, October 11 October 11, Ungraded Homework The starting position is a b c d e a b e c d e d We are given bd = e and ec = d . Now which element is the identity? The equality bd = e rules out b and d , and the equality ec = d rules out e and c . We are only left with a , so a is the identity. Therefore we can fill in the a column and a row to obtain a b c d e a a b c d e b b e c c d d e e d Now consider bc . By looking at the b row it cannot be b or e , and by looking at the c column it can’t be c or d . Therefore it must be a . Since bc = a and a is the identity, we conclude that cb = a . We now consider cd . By looking at the d column it can’t be d or e , and by looking at the c row it can’t be c or a . Therefore it must be b , and we obtain the following table. a b c d e a a b c d e b b a e c c a b d d e e d We must now have c 2 = e , and the rest is easy; the final table is a b c d e a a b c d e b b d a e c c c a e b d d d e b c a e e c d a b Problem 17.15 on page 92. Let p be a prime.

### 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.

• 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.
