Proof: Generalization of the last Sylow's theorem

Prove the following generalization of the last Sylow's theorem: If |G| is divisible by p^b, and H <= G has order p^a with a <= b, then the number of subgroups of G that both contain H and have order p^b is congruent to 1 modulo p?

A) Show that there is exactly one maximal ideal in Z_8 and in Z_9. b) Show that Z_10 and Z_15 have more than one maximal ideal.

System of Equations

We described three methods to solving Linear Systems with two Equations. They are the Graph method, the Elimination method, and the Substitution method. When would you use each method? What makes each method better than the other methods?

Normal Sylow Theorem

Let G be a group of order 48. By the 1st Sylow theorem G has a Sylow 2-subgroup and a Sylow 3-subgroup. Suppose none of these are normal. Determine the number of Sylow 2-subgroups and Sylow 3-subgroups that G can have. Justify your answer.

Sylow 5-subgroup ordering

Suppose that G is a group of order 30 and has a Sylow 5-subgroup that is not normal. Find the number (not what they are) of elements of order 1, of order 2, of order 3, of order 5. Justify your answer.

Wieferich m-squares

It is a fact that for any odd prime p, there is a number b so that b has order p(p-1) modulo p^2. Given that fact, show that for any odd prime p, there is a number m so that p^2 is a Wieferich m-square.

Show thw equivalence of two definitions of a contractible space.

We have defined space X to be contractible in two ways: Definition 1: X is contractible if it is homotopy equivalent to a point; and Definition 2: X is contractible if the identity map of X is null-homotopic. Show that these two definitions are equivalent.

Algebra Problems for Circular Cylinder Hemispheres

Fundamental groups of the Moebius strip and the cylinder.

Show that the Mobius strip and the cylinder both have fundamental group Z. We can use the following theorem: If G acts on X, pi1(X) = {e}, and for all x elements of X there exists Ux neighborhood of X such that Ux intersection g(Ux) = empty set for all g elements of G{e}, then pi1(XG) is homeomorphic to G.

Solving for Systems of Linear Equations

Create a system of linear equations from my own life. Keep in mind that a system of linear equations will consist of two equations using the same variables and the variables will represent the same thing for both equations, i.e., if you use X as a variable in the first equation and X represents a number of Beers then you need to

Functions and Models

Think of a mathematical function that represents something from your own life. For example, suppose the number of beers you drink depends on the number of football games you watch. If you drink five beers during every football game, the function would be: Number of Beers (B) = 5 times Number of Football Games (F), or B = 5F
