## Homework Statement

1)Consider the permutation in S3 = ( 1 2 3 )

( 1 2 3 ) NOTE: the two pairs of parenthesis are

meant to be one pair that encases both rows

Write as a product of transpositions

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

(1 3) (1 2), which was wrong. I randomly plugged in numbers until I ended up with the correct solution of (1,3) (1,2) (1,3) which contradicts all the examples of transpositions I have seen, like (1 3 2 4) = (1 4) (1 2) (1 3).

How does one go about finding the solution to my problem?
