To decide if the first group (the direct sum) is isomorpbic to Z27,
Description of the groups whose isomorphism is under question. The question arises because both (the direct sum as well as Z27 contain the same number of elements:27). We will show that these two groups are NOT isomorphic
Now, Z3  Z={(x, y) : x  Z3, y  Z9}
Where, Z3={0, 1, 2}(addition modulo 3)
Z9={0, 1, 2, 3,  8}(addition modulo 9) whereas,
Z27={0, 1, 2, 3,  26}(addition modulo 27)
First observe that the direct sum is not a cyclic group.
Now, Z3  Z9={(x, y) : x  Z3, y  Z9}
Now, 9(x, y)=(9x, 9y)=(0, 0),A(x, y) Z3  Z9
So any element has order at most 9
So, Z3  Z9 is not cycllc.
(otherwise, E(x, y)  Z3 oi Z9 with order 27)
On the other hand Z27 is a cyclic group, for example , with 1 as a generator. So the given two groups are not isomorphic.

Effect of alcoholic parents A study1 compared personality characteristics between 49 children of alcoholics and a control group of 49 children of nonalcoholics who were matched on age and gender. On a measure of well being, the 49 children of alcoholics had a mean of 26.1(s=7.2) and the 49 subjects in the control group had a mean of [28.8(s=6.4)]. The difference scores between the matched subjects from the two groups had a mean of 2.7(s=9.7).
