Here's the Solution to this Question

By the universal property of a quotient, there is a natural homorphism f : G/H \to G 0 .

Suppose that x is in the kernel of f. Then x has the form gH and by definition of f, f(x) = φ(g). Thus g is in the kernel of φ and so g ∈ H. In this case x = H, the identity of G/H. So the kernel of f is trivial and f is injective. Hence f is an isomorphism.
