Hi: Let G be a p-primary group that is not divisible. Assume there is x in G[p] that is divisible by p(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); ^{k}but not by p^{k+1}and let x= p^{k}y. Show that <y> is pure in G.

Let x \in G[p] such as described. I must prove that <y> intersection nG is a subset of n<y>. p^{k+1}y= px =0. In case (n,p)=1, there is b in <y> such that y=nb and then sy= snb= n(sb) in n<y>. But when (n,p) not equal 1 I cannot find a way. Could you tell me how I should proceed?
