Modern Algebra 1 Homework 6.2 Spring 2010 Due February 24 Exercise 3. Let f : A B be a bijection of sets. Prove that the function F : Sym( A ) Sym( B ) given by F ( g ) = f g f - 1 is a group isomorphism. Conclude that if A has size n then Sym( A ) = S n . Exercise 4. Let G be a group and let H be a subgroup. Given x,y G we say that x is congruent to y modulo H provided x - 1 y H . If x and y are congruent modulo H then we write x y (mod H ).
