Finding Torsion Coefficients

  1. May 6, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Let G be a finite abelian group and let #(n) signify the number of elements x in G which satisfy x^n = e. Find the torsion coefficients of G when #(2)=16, #(4)=32, #(3)=9, #(9)=81 and x^36=e for all x in G.


    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution
    I really am not sure how to approach this problem. We've been looking at how to classify finite abelian groups so I know that theorem should come into play, but how do I start figuring out what the coefficients are?....

    Never mind, I figured it out...
