    Show that U(10) is isomorphic to Z_4 and write out the isomorphism explicitly.

    I know that U(10) and Z_4 are both cyclic, thus they are ismorphic but for writing out the isomorphism, I need assistance.

    Z_10 = {[0], [1], ... [9]} and the subset
    U(10) = {[1], [3], [7], [9]} consists of residue classes [s] mod 10 such that gcd(s, 10) = 1, where we choose representatives s between 1 and ...
