A question from artin 6.2:

Two tetrahedra can be inscribed into a cube C, each one using half the vertices. Relate this to

the inclusion A4 is a subset of S4.

3. The attempt at a solution

I can only think that the tetrahedral group is isomorphic to A4, and the cube is isomorphic to S4. And since you can fit two tetrahedra in a cube, this would imply that A4 is a subset of S4.

Is this correct?

Thanks
