My idea was to simply shift one permutation group up enough so that it commutes with the other. However I am stuck trying to figure out how to shift it up, i.e. add 5 to each number in the permutation. Anyone have any ideas?

http://ask.sagemath.org/question/32499/need-to-shift-a-permutation-12345-678910/?answer=32500#post-id-32500You can simply use conjugation
sage: S5 = SymmetricGroup(5)
sage: S10 = SymmetricGroup(10)
sage: t = S10("(1,6)(2,7)(3,8)(4,9)(5,10)")
sage: s = S5("(1,2,3)(4,5)")
sage: t*s*~t
(6,7,8)(9,10)
Or be more direct with
sage: f = lambda s: S10(range(1,6) + [s(i)+5 for i in range(1,6)])
sage: f(s)
(6,7,8)(9,10)
