# Commutator of a group and a subgroup implies normal

From Groupprops

This article describes a computation relating the result of the commutator operator on two known subgroup properties or properties of subsets of groups: (i.e., improper subgroup and subgroup), to another known subgroup property (i.e., normal subgroup)

This article gives the statement and possibly, proof, of an implication relation between two subgroup properties. That is, it states that every subgroup satisfying the first subgroup property (i.e., subgroup realizable as the commutator of the whole group and a subgroup) must also satisfy the second subgroup property (i.e., normal subgroup)
