Hey guys. Ive been stuck on the following thing for a little while now. Some help would be appreciated.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

If p divides o(G) (G an abelian group and p a prime), then show that

G(p) = {g from G | o(g) = p^k for some k }

I keep going round in circles.

P.S. - this is not a homework question, just something I saw in an abstract algebra book that they stated without proof.
