# Listing elements of (Z/nZ)*

I want to find all the elements of (Z/nZ)*. Is there a command for that ? For example if the user gives input 8, the the output will be {1,3,5,7}.

Listing elements of (Z/nZ)*

You can use the method with a surprizing long but explicit name `list_of_elements_of_multiplicative_group`

:

```
sage: G = Zmod(8) ; G
Ring of integers modulo 8
sage: G.list_of_elements_of_multiplicative_group()
[1, 3, 5, 7]
```

If you want this set as a genuine group, you can do:

```
sage: G.unit_group()
Multiplicative Abelian group isomorphic to C2 x C2
```
