## Homework Statement

If a group has order 20 has 4 conjugacy classes, it must have a trivial centre. True or False?

## Homework Equations

The Class Equation

## The Attempt at a Solution

I believed the answer to be false with this following counterexample:

20 = lZ(G)l + (20/4 + 20/4 + 20/5 + 20/5) => order of Z(G) = 2 => the centre is non-trivial.

where 5, 5, 4, 4 is the size of the 4 conjugate classes respectively

Any feedback on my reasoning and any flaws are very much appreciated
