# Classify all groups of order 1225

Ok,

so this was a recent question I've been asked for homework. "Classify all groups of order $1225$". That's all the question says. How in the world do I approach this?? We have the symmetric group of order $1225$, cyclic group of order $\,1225 = 5*5*7*7\,$ and so we have that as a group.. but the list just seems so big. How do we classify all groups of this order, it's huge! We had a similar question on groups of order $8$ the other week and it wasn't easy..

Thanks for any help guys!

Such questions can very often be addressed using knowledge of the classification of Abelian Groups, and Sylow's theorems to get a handle on possible nonabelian groups. – Mark Bennet Nov 14 '12 at 15:58

## 1 Answer

Hints:

1) Prove there are exactly one Sylow 5-subgroup and one Sylow 7-subgroup

2) Prove that every group of order the square of a prime number is abelian

3) Show thus that any group of order $\,1225\,$ is abelian and thus

4) There are only $\,4\,$ groups of order $\,1225\,$ (Using the Fundamental Theorem of Finitely Generated Abelian Groups)
