(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Let G be a group with p^{k}elements, where p is a prime number and k is greater than or equal to 1. Prove that G has a subgroup of order p.

3. The attempt at a solution

I attempted to prove this by showing that the conditions for a set to be subgroup form a subgroup of order p. I have become lost, however, in my proof. Any direction would be helpful. :-)
