This article gives the statement and possibly, proof, of an implication relation between two group properties. That is, it states that every group satisfying the first group property (i.e., group whose automorphism group is solvable) must also satisfy the second group property (i.e., solvable group)

Suppose G is an group whose automorphism group is solvable, i.e., a group whose automorphism group is solvable. Then, G is also solvable. Moreover, if the derived length of the automorphism group of G is l, the derived length of G is at most l + 1.

The converse is not true: solvable not implies aut-solvable.
