2. Relevant equations

3. I know that the order of a groups tells you how many elements the group consist, but just randomly assuming that it has at least an order of 2 is what I can't really understand. For example |G| = 6, which means that G = {a,b,c,d,e,f} I know that one of its element is the identity element which is e, but the order of the other elements can all be 2, or one element can only have order 2. I just need to understand how the order of a group relates to he order of its element.
