Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Since 15 divides the order of the cyclic group G, there is exactly one subgroup H of order 15. (For example H could be Z15.) Each of the elements in H has an order which divides 15, so each element satisfies X^15 = e. So there are 15 elements in G such that  X^15 = e.

Similarly there are 20 solutions for X^20 = e.

In general, when n divides the order of a cyclic group, the number of solutions of X^n = e is n.


Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions. Kindly best this answer if it has helped you.
