FACTS TO CHECK AGAINST FOR SUBGROUP STRUCTURE: (finite group)
Lagrange's theorem (order of subgroup times index of subgroup equals order of whole group, so both divide it), |order of quotient group divides order of group (and equals index of corresponding normal subgroup)
Sylow subgroups exist, Sylow implies order-dominating, congruence condition on Sylow numbers|congruence condition on number of subgroups of given prime power order
normal Hall implies permutably complemented, Hall retract implies order-conjugate
