Group Classification

  1. Dec 10, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Classify all groups of order 39

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I can show that if the group of abelian, it is isomorphic to Z/3Z*Z/13Z.
    If the group is not abelian, there are two types of groups, they either follow the rule : x^3=e, y^13=e, and xy=y^3x; or x^3=e, y^13=e, and xy=y^9x. But I want to show that they are the same thing if I rename x^2=z.
    But I want to prove that there is a homomorphic between these two groups. Could some one help me?
