## Homework Statement

I want to find out if the sixth root of unity is a subgroup of the complex numbers with multiplication.

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

I know it's true but my problem is getting there.

I know the sixth root of unity must be closed under the binary operation of G. So, I need to show that the result is still a sixth root of unity. My problem is getting to that point.

The identity element is in the sixth root of unity. The identity element would be 1, so this is true.

I need to show that there is an inverse. The sixth root of unity includes both positive and negative values, so this exists.
