Show that [itex]\langle[/itex] a,b [itex]\rangle[/itex] = [itex]\langle[/itex] a,ab [itex]\rangle[/itex] = [itex]\langle[/itex] a^-1,b^-1 [itex]\rangle[/itex] for all a and b in a group G(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am not sure what this question is asking. Does this notation mean that a the cyclic group is generated by a,b and any combination of the two?
