# number of subgroups of $\mathbb{Z}_{5}\times\mathbb{Z}_{5}$

I have to show that the number of subgroups of $\mathbb{Z}_{5}\times\mathbb{Z}_{5}$ (other than identity and itself) is six, but I am a bit confused. please help!

P.S. can someone also tell if there is some method to determine the subgroups of direct products of cyclic groups?

The subgroups you are looking for must have order 5. In particular, they are cyclic. The elements $(0,1),(1,0),(1,1),(1,2),(1,3),(1,4)$ each generate one of these subgroups.
