General affine group:GA(1,9)
This group is the general affine group of degree one over the field of nine elements. In other words, it is the semidirect product of the additive group of the field of nine elements and the multiplicative group of the field of nine elements.

This finite group has order 72 and has ID 39 among the groups of order 72 in GAP's SmallGroup library. For context, there are 50 groups of order 72. It can thus be defined using GAP's SmallGroup function as:
For instance, we can use the following assignment in GAP to create the group and name it :
gap> G := SmallGroup(72,39);
Conversely, to check whether a given group is in fact the group we want, we can use GAP's IdGroup function:
IdGroup(G) = [72,39]
or just do:
to have GAP output the group ID, that we can then compare to what we want.
