**Prove that ord(a) = ord(bab^(-1)) (Edited/Fixed)**

## Homework Statement

Prove that ord(a) = ord(bab

^{-1})

## Homework Equations

N/A

## The Attempt at a Solution

Part 1: Show that ord(bab

^{-1}) = n

Suppose that ord(a) = n

Then a

^{n}= e.

I then have to use the associative law to show (bab

^{-1})

^{n}= e but that's where I'm having troublem.

Part 2: Show that ord(a) = n

Suppose ord(bab

^{-1}) = e

Then (bab

^{-1})

^{n}= e

I then have to use the associative law to show that a

^{n}= e but I'm stuck there as well.

Help is greatly appreciated.
