# Give an example of a finite non-commutative ring.

Similarly, give an example of an infinite non-commutative ring that does not have a unity.

Matrices are good also for the infinite case: consider the $2\times2$ matrices over $\mathbb{Z}$ where all entries are even. – egreg Dec 4 '13 at 21:38

$\textbf{Hint:}$ Think about matrix rings. They are usually non-commutative.
Let $S$ be a semigroup with the multiplication: $ab=a$ for all $a,b$, and $F_2$ be the 2-element field. The semigroup ring $F_2S$ is a desired example.
Unless I'm sorely mistaken, it seems like this is pretty commutative. $ab = ba = 0$ – Stahl Dec 4 '13 at 21:22
