Use Cauchy’s Theorem and induction to prove that a finite abelian group G has a subgroup of order d for all d dividing the order of G .
if there is other proof without
This question came from our discussion, support, and feature requests site for people studying math at any level and professionals in related fields.
1) From Cauchy's Theorem for any prime dividing the group's order there's an element $\,x_p\,$ of order $\,p\,$
2) The claim follows at once for $\,|G|=1,2,3,4\,$ and, in fact, for every prime.
3) Use (1) above and the fact that every subgroup of an abelian group is normal and look at the group $\,G/\langle x_p\rangle\,$
4) Apply the inductive hypothesis to the group in (3) and end the argument.
