Advanced Method for Proving Normal Subgroup

For beginners in Group Theory, the basic method to prove that a subgroup is normal in a group is to show that “left coset = right coset”, i.e. 217 more words

Proof that any subgroup of index 2 is normal

Let be a subgroup of index 2.

Let and .

If , then , and , hence left coset equals to right coset.

If , then (set minus), and also , thus left coset also equals to right coset. 31 more words
