The following information is available for S_{8}(3):

Standard generators of S_{8}(3) are **a** and **b** where
**a** is in class 2B, **b** is in class 4D and **ab** has order 14.

Standard generators of the double cover 2.S_{8}(3) = Sp_{8}(3)
are preimages **A** and **B** such that **AB ^{3}(AB)^{4}** has order 9.

Standard generators of S_{8}(3):2 are not defined.

Standard generators of either of the double covers 2.S_{8}(3):2 are not defined.

- Find an element
*x*in class 2B, say by powering up an element of order 24, 72 or 90. - Find an element
*t*in class 4D, say by powering up an element of order 84. - Find a conjugate
*y*of*t*such that*xy*has order 14. - The elements
*x*and*y*are standard generators.

- Some primitive permutation representations.
