Finite and Infinite Groups
If a group contains a finite number of distinct elements, it is called a finite group. Otherwise it is an infinite group.
In other words, a group is said to be finite or infinite according to whether the underlying set is finite or infinite.
Order of a Group
The number of elements in a finite group is called the order of the group. An infinite group is said to be of infinite order.
Note: It should be noted that the smallest group for a given composition is the set consisting of the identity element alone.
is the example of a finite group with order 3.
is the another example of a finite group with order 4.
