Normal subgroups are very important objects in Group Theory. One of the 'must-never-forget'-theorems is the following.

Let N be a normal subgroup of a group G and H be any subgroup of G. Then the intersection of H and N is a normal subgroup of H.

For the proof we use the following theorem.

A subgroup H is a normal subgroup in G if gH=Hg for all elements g in G.

In easy to remember math: "The intersection of a normal subgroup with another subgroup is normal in that subgroup." ( H&N is N(ormal)in H )

If this seems difficult: this theorem becomes trivial real fast.
