Description of Solving Systems of Linear Equations

Whenever a formula is used, begin by typing the formula you intend to use. Make sure to subscript where appropriate. Solve the system of equations using the substitution method. If the answer is a unique solution, present it as an ordered pair (x, y). If not, specify whether the answer is "no solution" or "infinitely many soluti

Automorphisms

Show that all automorphisms of a group G form a group under function composition. Then show that the inner automorphisms of G, defined by f : G--->G so that f(x) = (a^(-1))(x)(a), form a normal subgroup of the group of all automorphisms. For the first part, I can see that we need to show that f(g(x)) = g(f(x)) for x in
