    I)
    Let A, B, and C be groups, let alpha, beta, and gamma be homomorphisms with gamma times alpha = beta

    alpha gamma beta
    A--------->B----------->C<---------A

    If alpha is surjective, prove that ker(gamma)= alpha((ker(beta)).

    ii)
    Prove that if K is a subgroup of a group G, and if every left coset of aK is equal to the right coset Kb, then K is a normal subgroup of G.

    I just dont know how to do these, the confuse me and I am horrible at writing them in good proof form
