LetG be a finite group with an abelian Sylow 2-subgroup. LetA be a nilpotent subgroup ofG of maximal order satisfying class (A)≦k, wherek is a fixed integer larger than 1. Suppose thatA normalizes a nilpotent subgroupB ofG of odd order. ThenAB is nilpotent. Consequently, ifF(G) is of odd order andA is a nilpotent subgroup ofG of maximal order, thenF(G)A.
