% User defined commands:
\newcommand{\br}{\mathbb R} % this is the symbol for the real numbers. mathbb is the "blackboard bold" font
\newcommand{\bz}{\mathbb Z} % integers
\newcommand{\bq}{\mathbb Q} % rationals
\newcommand{\bn}{\mathbb N} % natural numbers
\newcommand{\co}{\colon\thinspace} % this is a good way to write functions, i.e instead of $f: X \to Y$, you would write $f\co X \to Y$. It looks nicer.
% You may add shortcuts for any commands you find yourself using frequently.
\DeclareMathOperator{\ord}{ord} % This command lets you declare math operators. Some built in operators are \sin for sine and \cos for cosine. This makes the operators appear nicely in the math environment. If I wanted to make the sine operator myself, it would look like \DeclareMathOperator{\sin}{sine}.

\medskip
{\bf Instructions.} \textit{Read the appropriate homework guide (\href{http://qc.edu/~nvlamis/301S24/Homework_Guide_301.pdf}{Homework Guide for 301} or \href{http://qc.edu/~nvlamis/301S24/Homework_Guide_601.pdf}{Homework Guide for 601}) to make sure you understand how to successfully complete the assignment.
All claims must be sufficiently justified. }

\begin{Exercise}
Complete the following exercises from \#1 from \href{http://abstract.ups.edu/aata/cyclic-exercises.html}{Section~4.5} in the course textbook:
\# 24, 25, 29, \textbf{*34}, 36
\end{Exercise}
\medskip
\begin{Exercise}
Prove that the order of \( S_n \) is \( n! \).
\end{Exercise}
\medskip
\begin{Exercise}
\begin{enumerate}[(a)]
\item Write down the elements in the cyclic subgroups generated by the cycles \( (1 \; 4 \; 3) \) and \( (1 \; 3 \; 5 \; 2 \; 4 \; 6 ) \).
\item
Prove the order of a \( k \)-cycle is \( k \).
\end{enumerate}
\end{Exercise}
\medskip
\begin{Exercise}
Complete the following exercises from \href{http://abstract.ups.edu/aata/permute-exercises.html}{Section~5.4} in the course textbook:
\#1, 2(a,b,c,d), 4, 5 (ignore the first sentence, and just find each of the sets in a, b, and c, and decide whether they are subgroups or not), 17, 23, \textbf{*33}
\end{Exercise}
\medskip
\begin{ExGraded}
Prove that a \( k \)-cycle can be expressed as the product of \( k-1 \) transpositions.
(Hint: You should use induction.)
\end{ExGraded}
%\medskip
%\begin{ExGraded}
%From Exercise 1, \( |S_4| = 4! = 24 \).
%Show that for any divisor \( d \) of 24 there exists a subgroup \( H \) such that \( |H| = d \).

\medskip
\begin{ExChallenge}
Prove that any two \( k \)-cycles in \( S_n \) are conjugate, that is, if \( \sigma, \tau \in S_n \) are \( k \)-cycles, then there exists \( \mu \in S_n \) such that \( \mu \sigma \mu^{-1} = \tau \).
