Free group

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    I don't understand why every group is not free. Apparently Z_10, for example is not a free group. Can someone give me an example of why this group does not satisfy the definition of a free group?

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
