I am trying to understand homomorphisms from to and despite some help from earlier posts am still struggling.

I am thus reading Beachy and Blair: Abstract Algebra on group homomorphisms and am trying to follow Example 3.7.7 on page 156 which seeks to determine all homomorphisms from to (see relevant page attached). I can follow this example but am having trouble with a particular step.

I will present their argument down to the problematic step - and I will make the example more concrete by seeking to determine all homomorphisms :

In terms of my particular example the argument of Beachy and Blair is as follows:

================================================== ====

Consider :

Any such homomorphism is completely determined by ( ), and this must be an element of whose order is a divisor of 6.

In an abelian group with the operation denoted additively we have that if o(a) | n if and only if n.a = 0.

Applying this result to in we have o( ) | 6 if and only if n. =(Beachy and Blair ask us to compare with Exercise 11 of Section 2.1 - see other attached sheet)which happens if and only if 10 | 6m

etc etc - see attached sheet

================================================== ==

My question is how does the step that concludes " which happens if and only if 10 | 6m" follow ie how does this last step of the argument follow?

I would be grateful for any help!
