Why every odd order subgroup has to be subgroup of cyclic odd

Please see the attached file first. I did the proof, but it's weak, since I can't find a way to argue why every odd order subgroup has to be a subgroup of the cyclic odd order subgroup K of index 2, and by the divisibility argument it still could be a subgroup of G and not to be contained entirely in K.

Matrices, Eigenvectors, Eigenvalues and Inverses

Determining the equation for a matrix and confirming the inverse, eigenvalues Details: I have think the answer to question (a) is theta^2 [(1-p)I + pJ]. But when I am multiplying the sigma and the sigma inverse I still have "stuff" at the tail end of the identity......being added. I know I should be left with the identity if t

Prove that every regular tournament is strong.

Prove that every regular tournament is strong. Hints Here we need to first figure out something more about outdegrees and indegrees and orders of regular digraphs. Try to find a regular digraps with 3, 4, 5 ,6 vertices, and generalize. D is a regular tournament if there is k such that outdegree x = k and indegree x = n-k
