# Answer to Question #23880 in Abstract Algebra for Irvin

Question #23880
Let G be the group of order 21 generated by two elements a, b with the relations a^7 = 1, b^3 = 1, and bab^−1 = a^2. How about RG and the real representations of G?
Expert's answer
Tensoring QG &sim; Q &times; Q(&omega;) &times;M3(Q(&radic;&minus;7)),up to R, we get RG &sim; R &times; C &times;M3(C),which means that each of the irreducible Q-representations above remainsirreducible over R (and these give all irreducible R-representations). We see
that the 6-dimensional irreducible
rational (resp. real) representationof G tensors up into the direct sum of the two 3-dimensional complexrepresentations of G. (Of course, this is also easy to see by checkingdirectly that &chi;K= &chi;4 + &chi;5.)
