## Extension Degree of Maximal Real Subfield of Cyclotomic Field

## Problem 362

Let $n$ be an integer greater than $2$ and let $\zeta=e^{2\pi i/n}$ be a primitive $n$-th root of unity. Determine the degree of the extension of $\Q(\zeta)$ over $\Q(\zeta+\zeta^{-1})$.

The subfield $\Q(\zeta+\zeta^{-1})$ is called **maximal real subfield**.
