comment Intuitive understanding of the derivatives of $\sin x$ and $\cos x$
@:Eric: Yeh, so its only intuitive if you think about them as taylor series, rather than ratios of sides of triangles. As I said, it isn't exactly what was asked for, but i do think it gives you a better understanding of how the chain occurs.

@Eric: The question was for an intuitive understanding, not an intuitive proof.

@Akhil: Then write one or two sentences introducing it. A complete explanation is better, but not necessary

comment What are all the homomorphisms between the rings $\mathbb{Z}_{18}$ and $\mathbb{Z}_{15}$?
Okay, so the annihilation leads to the mapping being a homomorphism as both rings are cyclic.

For 2., it is vital that the inverse is unique. Otherwise, this is a very nice summary

What do you mean by $T \subset Z_{10}$? In fact, what do you mean by $T$?
