- It is the external direct product of the cyclic group of order 27 and the elementary abelian group of order 9.

## GAP implementation

### Group ID

This finite group has order 243 and has ID 48 among the groups of order 243 in GAP's SmallGroup library. For context, there are groups of order 243. It can thus be defined using GAP's SmallGroup function as:

`SmallGroup(243,48)`

For instance, we can use the following assignment in GAP to create the group and name it :

`gap> G := SmallGroup(243,48);`

Conversely, to check whether a given group is in fact the group we want, we can use GAP's IdGroup function:

`IdGroup(G) = [243,48]`

or just do:

`IdGroup(G)`

to have GAP output the group ID, that we can then compare to what we want.

### Other descriptions

The group can be described using GAP's CyclicGroup, ElementaryAbelianGroup, and DirectProduct functions in either of the following equivalent ways:

`DirectProduct(CyclicGroup(27),ElementaryAbelianGroup(9))`

or

`DirectProduct(CyclicGroup(27),CyclicGroup(3),CyclicGroup(3))`
