Group Theory (X)
In a group G in which (a.b)^i =a^i.b^i for three consecutive integers for all a,b belongs to G, then G is abelian.
Show that the conclusion does not follow if we assume the relation (a.b)^i =a^i.b^i for just two consecutive integers.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com October 9, 2019, 5:26 pm ad1c9bdddf

In a group in which for three consecutive integers for all ,
then is abelian.
Show that the conclusion does not follow if we assume the relation
for just two consecutive integers.
Solution:- Suppose the relation holds for only two consecutive integers and .
This solution shows that the conclusion that the Quaternion group G is an abelian does not follow for the two consecutive integers with the relation (a.b)^i =a^i.b^i in an attached Word document.
