Step 1

To prove the stated properties of group homomorphisms

Step 2

proof of (a): the image f(S) is normal in the image f(G) . (note that f(G) need not be H) help_outlineImage Transcriptionclosef:GH.group homomorphism so, f(y) f(x)(y) Vx, y G. () (a)recall.a subgroup S< G (normal) if gsg SVg G,s E S. From () it follows that f(gsg) f(g)f(s)f (g)" e f(\$) if gsgS Thus,S Gf(S) 4 f(G) fullscreen
Step 3

(b) example for S, G , H and f, where S is norm... help_outlineImage Transcriptionclose(b)Let G subgroup of H S the symmetric group,with G {e,(12)} Consider f identity map(of subgroup G) f GH S, Let S G.clearly,S 4 G but f(S) G not normal in H S for example (123)(12)123)1 (123)(12)(l32) f(S) G. = (23) fullscreen
