# Show there cannot exist an onto homomorphism $\phi$ between $\mathbb{Z}_4\times\mathbb{Z}_4$ and $\mathbb{Z}_8$?

I'm stumped here. I do know that, if there is such an onto homomorphism, then there must be an isomorphism between $\mathbb{Z}_4\times\mathbb{Z}_4$ / Ker$\phi$ and $\mathbb{Z}_8$. Not sure where to go with that.

If $\phi:G\to H$ is a homomorphism between finite groups, then the order of $\phi(g)$ in $H$ divides the order of $g$ in $G$.
Next, note that $\mathbb{Z}/4\mathbb{Z}\times\mathbb{Z}/4\mathbb{Z}$ doesn't contain an element of order $8$.
Suppose $\phi$ is an onto homomorphism from $\mathbb{Z}_{4}\times\mathbb{Z}_{4}$ to $\mathbb{Z}_{8}$. Then $\phi(x)=[3]_{8}$ for some $x\in\mathbb{Z}_{4}\times\mathbb{Z}_{4}$. Derive a contradiction from this.
