I am trying to use GAP to study a certain finite (finitely presented)

group. To make the question simple, suppose I want to consider a

free group with 1 generator X and 1 relation: X*X = 1.

This group has two elements: IdWord & X .

Given an element, such as X*X*X*X*X*X*X, how can I make the GAP program

reveal to me which of two elements, IdWord or X, this is?

Thanks,

Bill
