$G(3,m,n)$ is the group presented by $\langle a,b\mid a^5=(ab)^2=b^{m+3}a^{-n}b^ma^{-n}=1\rangle $. In this paper, we study the structure of $G(3,m,n)$. We also give a new efficient presentation for the Projective Special Linear group $PSL(2,5)$ and in particular we prove that $PSL(2,5)$ is isomorphic to $G(3,m,n)$ under certain conditions.
