Homomorphism

If G = <X> and $:G->G1 is an onto homomorphism, show that G1 = <$(X)>, where $(X) = the set of $(x) given that x belongs to X.

Solution Preview

Proof:
Let X={x1,...,xn}. G=<X>=<x1,...,xn>. So for any g in G, we can express g in form of x1^(k1)...xn^(kn).
Since $ is onto homomorphism, ...
