Abstract Algebra- Conjugate Problem

  1. Apr 15, 2013 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Let G be a group of odd order, and a an element of G (not identity). Show that a and a^-1 are not conugate.

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    The only hint I have is to consider action of G on itself by conjugation.
