Hello,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am having difficulty with the following problem in Group theory:

How do you positive integers r such that there is a surjective homomorphism from S_n (This is the symmetric group of order n) to

C_r (This is the cyclic group order r) for some n ?

I am not sure where to even start and any pointers in right direction will

be greatly appreciated.
