to show that U(14) = <3> = < 5 >.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

i.e, U(14) is cyclic.

ok, so U(14) = 1, 3, 5, 9, 11, 13

and <3> = 3^1 = 3, 3^2 = 9, 3 ^3 = 13, 3^4 = 11, 3^5 = 5, and 3^6 = 1.

So what am I doing to show that it is Cyclic? Am I showing that with <3>, I can generate the same elements over and over? is that what it means that it is cyclic?
