    and by ≤ you mean that H* is a subset of G?

    it's vean long time since I did this, but I would try to prove the axioms for the elements of H* to be a abelian group: Closure: For all a, b in H*, the result of the operation a • b is also in H*. Associativity For all a, b and c in H*, the equation (a • b) • c = a • (b • c) holds. Identity element There exists an element e in H*, such that for all elements a in H*, the equation e • a = a • e = a holds. Inverse element For each a in H*, there exists an element b in H* such that a • b = b • a = e, where e is the identity element. CommutativityFor all a, b in H*, a • b = b • a.

    then PQ^-1 =\[(xy ^{-1})((xy ^{-1}))^{-1}\]

    =\[(xy ^{-1})(x ^{-1}y)=(xx ^{-1})(yy ^{-1})\]
