On Finite Groups with Some Minimal Subgroups Weakly Supplemented

A subgroup H of a finite group G is weakly supplemented in G if there exists a proper subgroup K of G such that \(G=HK\). In the paper, we present some sufficient and necessary conditions for a finite group to be p-nilpotent and solvable by using some weakly supplemented minimal subgroups. As applications, we extend some known results.
