# Identity of Group is Unique/Proof 1

## Theorem

Let $\struct {G, \circ}$ be a group which has an identity element $e \in G$.

Then $e$ is unique.

## Proof

By the definition of a group, $\struct {G, \circ}$ is also a monoid.

The result follows by applying the result Identity of Monoid is Unique.
