When calculating powers of cycles, are there any easy steps to use in doing so? I mean...is there a typical relationship when calculating (123)^n?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Also, is it safe to say that a ceratin n-cycle should have order n or n-1?

I guess any explanation of orders for group elements would be appreciated. For now I will look some stuff up on mathworld, etc. Thanks for your help.
