### Subset of $\mathbb{Z} \times \mathbb{Z}$

I have a past exam question that is as follows: Let $k$ be a fixed integer and $S = \{(a,ka)|a \in \mathbb{Z}\}$ be a subset of $\mathbb{Z} \times \mathbb{Z}$. Prove that $S$ is a subgroup of ...

### Proper Ideal and Units Proof

Show that an ideal of I R is proper if and only if it does not contain 1 iff and only if it does not contain any units. (1 is the identity element) I'll need to show 3 parts: (1) $\implies$ (2): ...

### Smallest skew-field containing a non-commutative ring.

Let $R$ be an integral domain and take $D = R - \left\{ 0 \right\}$. The ring $D^{-1}R$ is the smallest field containing $R$ as a subring. Now suppose that I have a non-commutative ring $N$. Suppose ...

### How to prove that $J(M_n(R))=M_n(J(R))$?

How to prove that $J(M_n(R))=M_n(J(R))$? Here $M_n(R)$ is the ring of matrices of size $n^2$ over the ring $R$. And $J(M_n(R))$ is a two-sided ideal of the ring $M_n(R)$.

### $(\Bbb Z[x]/(x^{n+1}))^\times\cong\Bbb Z/2\Bbb Z \times \prod _{i=1}^n \Bbb Z$ [duplicate]

I'm trying to prove the group isomorphism $(\Bbb Z[x]/(x^{n+1}))^\times\cong\Bbb Z/2\Bbb Z \times \prod _{i=1}^n \Bbb Z$. Obviously I tried to establish a ring isomorphism from $\Bbb Z[x]/(x^{n+1})$ ...
### $R/I$ when $R$ is the ring of real continuous functions
If $R$ is the ring of all real continuous functions on $[0,1]$, I am trying to find $R/I$ where $$I=\{f\in{R}|f(.5)=0\}$$ Showing $I$ is an ideal is not a problem since we're defining addition and ...
