Corollary to Quotient Group is Group

Let $G$ be a group.

Let $N$ be a normal subgroup of $G$.

If $G$ is finite, then:

$\index G N = \order {G / N}$


From Quotient Group is Group, $G / N$ is a group.

From Lagrange's Theorem, we have:

$\index G N = \dfrac {\order G} {\order N}$

From the definition of quotient group:

$\order {G / N} = \dfrac {\order G} {\order N}$

Hence the result.
