# Finite groups of non zero real number under binary operation multiplication

How we can show that {1} and {1,-1} are the only finite groups of nonzero real numbers under binary operations multiplication?

The only torsion elements (equivalently, roots of unity) in ${\bf R}^\times$ are $\pm1$. –  anon Mar 12 '13 at 5:17

Suppose that $|a|\ne 1$, $a\ne 0$. Show that if $m\ne n$, then $a^m \ne a^n$.
