Showing that there is no embedding between groups

  1. Oct 11, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Show that there exists and embedding or show that an embedding can't exist between Z3 and Z.

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I've tried to find an embedding and can't so I've decided that an embedding can't exist but how does one show this?

    Any suggestions would be great.

    Hint: in [itex]\mathbb{Z}_3[/itex], we have 1+1+1=0.
