## Statement

Any Hall subgroup of a finite group is also a Hall subgroup in any intermediate subgroup.

## Facts used

1. Index is multiplicative

## Proof

Given: A finite group $G$, a Hall subgroup $H$, and a subgroup $K$ of $G$ containing $H$.

To prove: $H$ is a Hall subgroup of $K$.

Proof: Note that by the multiplicativity of index:

$[G:H] = [G:K][K:H]$.

Thus, the index $[K:H]$ divides the index $[G:H]$. In particular, if $|H|$ and $[G:H]$ are relatively prime, so are $|H|$ and $[K:H]$.
