## Main Question or Discussion Point

How would you embed the symmetric group on n letters in the alternating group of (n+2) letters??? I'm actually trying to write down an explicit map but can't seem to come up with one. I know An will be a subgroup of A(n+2) but I have a feeling that a map that is the identity on An and not-the-identity elsewhere won't work. Any thoughts?
