SL(2,5) is isomorphic to 2 \cdot A_n,n = 5. Recall that we have the following rules to determine splitting and orders. The rules listed below are only for partitions that already correspond to even permutations, i.e., partitions that have an even number of even parts:

Hypothesis: does the partition have at least one even part? Hypothesis: does the partition have a repeated part? (the repeated part may be even or odd) Conclusion: does the conjugacy class split from S_n to A_n in 2? Conclusion: does the fiber in 2 \cdot A_n over a conjugacy class in A_n split in 2? Total number of conjugacy classes in 2 \cdot A_n corresponding to this partition (4 if Yes to both preceding columns, 2 if Yes to one and No to other, 1 if No to both) Number of these conjugacy classes where order of element = lcm of parts Number of these conjugacy classes where order of element = twice the lcm of parts
