A little help needed. Prove: C(bab^-1)=bC(a)b^-1. I know that the centralizer states that every element a commutes with a. so can i say by definition of a centralizer b and its inverse doesnt commute therefore the right side is true? Thanks!!! :)

I didn't quite understand what you meant, but you should solve this using the definition of centralizers
