This article gives a proof/explanation of the equivalence of multiple definitions for the term Sylow number

- Sylow implies order-conjugate: Any two -Sylow subgroups are conjugate.
- Group acts on set of subgroups by conjugation: Under this action, the isotropy subgroup for any subgroup is its normalizer, and the index of the normalizer equals the number of conjugate subgroups to it.
The proof follows directly by piecing together facts (1) and (2).
