I am quite new to group theory, so I am trying to get my head around Sylow's Theorems and other stuff....I got an exercice here and I am not sure how to go on with the proofs.
We have a group G of order pqr, where p, q and r are distinct primes such that q
a) Deduce that the commutator group C of G is part of P.
Now assume that p =/= 1 (mod r) and p=/= 1 (mod q).
b) Prove that the number of subgroups of r elements of G is 1 o pq, and prove that the number of subgroups of q elements of G is 1 o pr.
c) Prove that G doesn't contain simultaneously pq subgroups of r and pr subgroups of q. Deduce that G has a unique subgroup of order r or an unique subgroup of order q, and that in any case, that subgroup is normal. Give it the name K.
d) Prove that G/K is abelian. Deduce that C = (id) and that G is abelian.
My thoughts to the questions so far: a) Use Sylow's second theorem, because we can show that the commuter group is a conjugate to the Sylow subgroups? b) Just applying Sylow's third theorem or is there more to proof? c) For me, it's visually obvious, but I don't know how to proof it.
Any help is much appreciated!
