3. If h ∈ H, then h−1 ∈ H. Proof. First suppose that H is a subgroup of G. We must show that the three conditions hold. Since H is a group, it must have an identity eH . We must show that eH = e, where e is the identity of G. We know that EXERCISES 49 eH eH = eH and that eeH = eH e = eH ; hence, eeH = eH eH . By right-hand cancellation, e = eH . The second condition holds since a subgroup H is a group. To prove the third condition, let h ∈ H. Since H is a group, there is an element h ∈ H such that hh = h h = e.

11] respectively. We can do arithmetic on Zn . For two integers a and b, define addition modulo n to be (a+b) (mod n); that is, the remainder when a + b is divided by n. Similarly, multiplication modulo n is defined as (ab) (mod n), the remainder when ab is divided by n. Example 1. The following examples illustrate integer arithmetic modulo n: 7 + 4 ≡ 1 (mod 5) 3 + 5 ≡ 0 (mod 8) 3 + 4 ≡ 7 (mod 12) 7 · 3 ≡ 1 (mod 5) 3 · 5 ≡ 7 (mod 8) 3 · 4 ≡ 0 (mod 12). In particular, notice that it is possible that the product of two nonzero numbers modulo n can be equivalent to 0 modulo n.
