 Degree
 return the degree of a permutation group Calling Sequence Degree( G ) Parameters

 G - a permutation group Description

 • The degree of a permutation group is the cardinality of the set upon which it acts.  Since permutation groups act on sets of the form $\left\{1,2,\dots ,n\right\}$, the degree is the positive integer $n$.
 • The Degree( G ) command returns the degree of a permutation group G.
 • Some group constructors, such as those for the symmetric and alternating groups take a degree parameter as input, and the Degree command returns this value. Examples
