# intersection of normal subgroups is a normal subgroup

If G is a finite group, define R = R(G) = INTERSECTION {K < G | G/K is solvable}.

a. Show that R is the smallest normal subgroup of G, such that G/R is solvable.

b. Show that G is solvable iff R = {1}.

c. If H <= G is a subgroup, show that R(H) <= H INTERSECTION R(G).
