# Order of Elements, Factor Groups and Homomorphisms

Help with this linear transformation problem. Please help with the following problem. Provide step by step calculations.

A. What is the order of the element 14 + <8> in the factor group Z24 / <8>?

I know that if I let G = Z24 and H = <8> , then H = <8> = {0,8,16}.

So Z24/<8> = {0+H,1+H,2+H,3+H,4+H,5+H,6+H,7+H}.

b. Prove or disprove: The map x --> 3x is a homomorphism from Z4 to Z6 .

Please see the attached file for the fully formatted problems.
