Hello. I have a question about the order of elements in a group:
let G be a group of order 2n. Show that the number of elements in G with order 2 is odd.
Here is what I have done so far:
Let H be the subset of G consisting of the identity and all the elements of G with order 2. Then H is a subgroup of G and so, by Lagrange's Theorem, the order of H divides the order of G.
My strategy was to use this to arrive at the order of H is even, completing the proof. But I am stuck at this point.
