Quotient group

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Let G be a group and let N be a normal subgroup of G. Then is the set of all cosets of N in G and is called the quotient group of N in G.

This group is used in the proof of Lagrange's Theorem, for instance. In fact, the proof of Lagrange's theorem establishes that if

G is finite, then .
