So they ask to show that each element of a group can be mapped to it's inverse is an automorphism only if the group is abelian.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

i can figure it out why each element is abelian to it's inverse, but i am short of understaning why every element must be commutable. any tips/ hints? thanks
