Posted this earlier but no response? Any ideas on how to do these questions?


3) a) Prove that if f : G → H is a group isomorphism, then for any element x ∈ G onehaso(x) = o(f(x)),
where o(a) denotes the order of the element a.

b) Based on the previous fact, prove that the groups C4 ad C2 × C2 are not isomorphic.
HereCn = {1, t, · · · , t^(n−1) |tn = 1}is the cyclic group of order n.

c) Prove that any group of order 4 is isomorphic either to the group C4 or C2 × C2.

Before the proper people get here, let |g| = n and |f(g)| = m, then:

(f(g))^n = f(g^n) = f(e_G) = e_H so m | n.

Then f(g^m) = (f(g))^m = e_H = f(e_G)

use the fact that f is injective to finish off and conclude.
