# Properties about order of a general group

For a group, $G$, is it true that $o(Z(G))\cdot o([G,G]) \leq o(G)$ where $Z(G)$ denotes the centre of $G$ and $[G,G]$ denotes the commutator subgroup of $G$?

-

Any perfect group $G$ (ie. $[G,G]=G$) with a nontrivial center is a counterexample; take for example $G= SL(2,5)$ (mentionned here).
I can not see why it is counter example, we get $o(G)\leq o(G)$ which is true. Am I missing something ? –  mesel Jul 12 '14 at 12:46
In ${\rm SL}(2,5)$ we have $|Z(G)|=2$, $|G|=|[G,G]|=120$. so $|Z(G)| \times |[G,G]| > |G|$. –  Derek Holt Jul 12 '14 at 12:47
