Not what you're looking for?

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.

##### Solution Summary

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.
