A finite group is termed a finite solvable group if it satisfies the following equivalent conditions:

  1. It is a solvable group
  2. It is a polycyclic group
  3. It has Sylow complements for all prime divisors of the order of the group
  4. It has Hall subgroups of all possible orders
  5. All its composition factors (i.e., the quotient groups for any composition series for the group) are cyclic groups of prime order.
