How to find just one permutation in s8

  1. Sep 5, 2009 #1
    Hello, can anyone tell me how to find order 15 in S8.

    I only know. Permutation (abc)(defgh) have order 15.

    Next, I would think about 8*7*6*5*4*3*2*1 = 13440

    Number of permutations, for order 15 in s8. would be

    8*7*6*5*4*3*2*1 / 3*5 = 896.

    There are 896 permutation of order 15 in s8.

    But how to find just one permutation in s8?
