How many subgroups of order 3 does G have?
So we have 8 elements, its prime decomposition is 8=2^3. The number of different ways to get factors is how many subgroups, at least that is what I interpret from my notes...so there are 2^3, 2*2^2, and 2*2*2, so three different ways to get factors, am I doing this right? Thanks

Do you mean G has 8 elements OR order 3, or do you mean G has 8 elements OF order 3.
