#### Abstract

Investigation of the number of representations as well as of projective representations of a finite group has been important object since the early of this century. The numbers are very related to the number of conjugacy classes of G, so that this gives some informations on finite groups and on group characters. A generally well-known fact is that the number of non-equivlaent irreducible representations, which we shall write as n.i.r. of G is less than or equal to the number of conjugacy classes of G, and the equality holds over an algebraically closed field of characteristic not dividing $\mid$G$\mid$. A remarkable result on the numbers due to Reynolds can be stated as follows.
