Quick question about subgroups of "odd" dihedral groups

  1. Dec 3, 2014 #1
    Will odd dihedral groups (e.g. d6, d10, d14) only have the identity, σ, τ and itself as subgroups as any power of σ with τ generates the entire group?

    If so would the subgroup lattice of d14 just be:
    d14 → σ & τ → e
