Homework Help: Proving H is normal

  1. Oct 31, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    If G is a finite group that has exactly one subgroup H of a given order, then H is normal.

    2. Relevant equations

    N/A

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I cannot figure out what makes a subgroup H special if it is the only one of a given order...
