## Chapter 5 Exercise 1 |

This software determines whether the two permutations (1x) and (123 ... n) generate S for various choices of _{n}x and n. (That is, whether every element of S can be expressed as some product of these permutations. )_{n}For n = 4, run the program for x = 2, 3, and 4. For n = 5, run the program for x = 2, 3, 4, and 5. For n = 6, run the program for x = 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6. For n = 8, run the program for x = 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8. Conjecture a necessary and sufficient condition involving x and n for (1x) and (123 ... n) to generate S. _{n} |
