 Let φ : G → H be a group homomorphism.

(a) Prove that Ker(φ) is a normal subgroup of G.

(a) Prove that Im(φ) is a subgroup of G. Is it normal? When?



Expert Answer

Step 1

To discuss normality of kernel and image under group homomorphisms,

Step 2

The kernel of a homomorphism is the set of all elements which are taken to the identity element and the image of a homomorphism is the set of all elements having pre-images .

Step 3

Proof that Kernel of a homomorphism is always a normal subgroup. T...
