Theorem 10.12

Return to Theorems, Glossary, Homework Problems.


The order of an element of a finite group divides the order of the group.


Remembering that the order of an element is the same as the order of the cyclic subgroup generated by the element, we see that this theorem follows directly from Theorem 10.10.
