# Groups of order 27

From Groupprops

This article gives information about, and links to more details on, groups of order 27

See pages on algebraic structures of order 27| See pages on groups of a particular order

## Statistics at a glance

Since is a prime power, and prime power order implies nilpotent, all the groups of order 27 are nilpotent groups.

Quantity | Value | Explanation |
---|---|---|

Total number of groups up to isomorphism | 5 | |

Number of abelian groups | 3 | equal to the number of unordered integer partitions of 3. See classification of finite abelian groups |

Number of groups of nilpotency class exactly two |
2 |

## The list

To learn more about how tocome upwith the list and prove that it is exhaustive (i.e., that these are precisely the isomorphism classes of groups of order 27), see classification of groups of prime-cube order

To understand these in a broader context, see
