### Are Free Groups the “Smallest Group” Containing their Generators

I apologize if this is a duplicate; I was not sure how to search for this. When I say "the smallest group" I mean unique up to isomorphism of course. Specifically, is "the smallest group containing ...
Definitions An (universal) algebra is a pair $\mathcal A=(A, (f_1,\dots, f_n))$ where $A$ is a non-empty set and $(f_1, \dots, f_n)$ is a family of finitary operations on $A$. The notation $o(f_i)$ ...
