There was an exercise in a book to prove that given N is a normal subgroup of a group G if H is also another normal subgroup of G the NH (the set of elements of the form nh for n in N and h in H) is a normal subgroup of G. That was all fine but I was wondering if the converse is true. Considering the exercise didn't ask to do this I'm guessing no, but I'm finding it hard to create a counter-example.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm trying to use the symmetric group. I thought that the alternating group [itex]A_{4}[/itex] could maybe be constructed from the Klein 4 group and another non-normal subgroup but I don't know how to show this, or if it's even true. Are there maybe simpler examples?
