Original -> Grain oilDiscrete Mathematics Level 5
\(\gamma\) is a permutation on eight elements, though you are not told which permutation it is. If \(\gamma\) is applied to an 8-element set, what is the minimum number of additional times we must apply \(\gamma\) to the resulting set in order to guarantee the set is back in its original configuration when we stop?
Details and assumptions
All of the elements are distinct.
