i need a clue to prove this. can any one please help?

Ifa&b beelements of a group G, & o(a)=m (read order ofa= m) and o(b)= n and gcd(m,n)=1

then <a> (intersection) <b>= {identity}

thanks...

i get it...o(c) must divide both m and n but they are co-prime...

thanks again..

had a good experience on the 1st day:) - Jun 3rd 2012, 10:48 AMILikeSerenaRe: cyclic group
