# The question in the name of Normal Subgroup and Isomorphism

Let $A$ and $B$ be two groups. Show that set $N$ = { $(a,1): a \in A$ } is the normal subgroup of $A$ x $B$ and
that the $A$ x $B$ $/ N$ quotient group is isomorph to $B$.

if you help me, i'll be exulted.

Homework ?

yes i can observe that

N=ker(π)

where π:A×B→B is the Projection map of the second factor B.

The kernel of an homomorphism of groups is always normal, so N is a normal subgroup.

Moreover, by the First isomorphism theorem, it holds

(A×B)/ker(π)≅B ... but is it enough?
