## How many Sylow 2-subgroups does S5 have?

15 Sylow 2-subgroups
Hence, there are 15 Sylow 2-subgroups in S5, each of order 8. Since every two Sylow 2- subgroups are conjugate by an element of S5, hence isomorphic, it suffices to determine the isomorphism type of just one of the Sylow 2-subgroups.

## How many Sylow 2-subgroups does S4 have?

three Sylow 2-subgroups
More counting reveals that S4 contains six 2-cycles, three 2 × 2-cycles, and six 4-cycles. Since the three Sylow 2-subgroups of S4 are conjugate, the different cycle types must be distributed “evenly” among the three Sylow 2-subgroups.

## How many Sylow 5 subgroups does S5 have?

6 Sylow
S5: 120 elements, 6 Sylow 5-subgroups, 10 Sylow 3-subgroups, and 15 Sylow 2-subgroups. A typical Sylow 5-subgroups is {e,(12345),(13524),(14253),(15432)}, which has normalizer 〈(12345),(2354)〉 with order 20.

## How many subgroups does S4 have?

30 subgroups
Subgroups. There are 30 subgroups of S4, including the group itself and the 10 small subgroups. Every group has as many small subgroups as neutral elements on the main diagonal: The trivial group and two-element groups Z2.

## Is S4 a subgroup of S5?

The subgroup is (up to isomorphism) symmetric group:S4 and the group is (up to isomorphism) symmetric group:S5 (see subgroup structure of symmetric group:S5).

## How many subgroups of S5 are there?

There are three normal subgroups: the whole group, A5 in S5, and the trivial subgroup.

## Where is Sylow 2 subgroups of S4?

Solution: The Sylow 2-subgroups of S4 have size 8 and the number of Sylow 2-subgroups is odd and divides 3. Counting shows that S4 has 16 elements of order dividing 8, and since every 2-subgroup is contained in a Sylow 2-subgroup, there cannot be only one Sylow 2-subgroup.

## Where can I find Sylow subgroups?

If P is a Sylow p-subgroup of G and Q is any p-subgroup of G, then there exists g∈G such that Q is a subgroup of gPg−1. In particular, any two Sylow p-subgroups of G are conjugate in G. np≡1(modp). That is, np=pk+1 for some k∈Z.

## How many sylow 3 subgroups of S4 are there?

Every group of order 3 is cyclic, so it is easy to write down four such subgroups: 〈(1 2 3)〉, 〈(1 2 4)〉, 〈(1 3 4)〉, and 〈(2 3 4)〉. Next note that the number of Sylow 3-subgroups in S4 is 1 mod 3 and divides 8, and so there are either 1 or 4 such subgroups.

## What are the subgroups of S5?

The only normal subgroups of S5 are A5, S5, and {1}.
