Greetings,
This is not a homework problem, but it has bothered me for quite a
while: I want to show that a group G of order p^2*q^2 are solvable,
where p, q are distinct odd prime with p<q, but got stocked. And
here's what I had:
Let P be a psylow subgroup and Q a qsylow subgroup. If either of
them are normal, it would be easy problem. If not, let N be the
normalizer of Q, then by Sylow's theorem, we must have [G:N] = p^2.
Now let G act on conjugates of Q, then the kernel K must be of order 1
or q, since G/K is a subgroup of S_p^2. If K = q, I can handle the
rest, but if K = 1, this is not very useful.
Also if the normalizer of P has index q, it would also be enough to
solve the problem, but I don't know how to get there neither.
Thanks in advance for any hints.
.
