Show that the set of the R-homomorphism $A\rightarrow B$ with factorization through an injective module is an subgroup of $Hom_{R}(A,B)$.

It's a question from my last test in abstract algebra, that I can't solve.

If $f:A\to B$ factors through the injective $I$, and $g:A\to B$ factors through the injective $J$, what injective does $f+g$ factor through? Remember that the direct product of two injective modules is injective... –  Mariano Suárez-Alvarez Nov 21 '10 at 4:28

Hint: This just follows from the fact that a direct sum of two injective modules is injective.
