It turns out you can do better. It is easy to show $\displaystyle A_5$ is simple with the Sylow Theorems; however, it is also true that $\displaystyle A_n$ is simple for $\displaystyle n \geq 5$.

It is kind of involved, but here is a pretty easy to follow proof that I found for you. PlanetMath: simplicity of the alternating groups - May 15th 2009, 12:23 AMxolani-flint
