I've been trying to figure out how to obtain generators for all of

the order 16 groups. I did manage to obtain the Order Distribution for

all of the 16-groups in GAP's library, but it raised some questions.

Both SolvableGroup(16,8) and SolvableGroup(16,9) have the same order

distribution -- [1,1] [2,7] [4,8]. I have a book which states that 27

is the first order where this occurs (Budden - The Fascination of

Groups), but I believe GAP more.

Anyways, any methods for getting generators or for building the

multiplication tables for these groups would be appreciated. This is

a lead in for building generators for all the order 24, 48, 60 and

120 order groups.
