Thanks Slade, sorry I didn't include the definition the first time around. This answer definitely helps.

comment Confused on a proof that $\langle X,1-Y\rangle$ is not principal
Thanks! Is it known that the units of the quotient ring are the same as the units of $\mathbb{Q}[X,Y]$, i.e., just $\mathbb{Q}^\times$? I was working it out, I could only determine that the units are the polynomials $g$ such that there exists $h$, such that $gh-1$ vanishes on the unit circle.

comment Confused on a proof that $\langle X,1-Y\rangle$ is not principal
May I ask a follow up? If $\langle f^2\rangle=\langle 1-Y\rangle$, doesn't that only imply $f(X,Y)^2g(X,Y)=1-Y$ for some $g(X,Y)$? How can you in fact assume $f(X,Y)^2=1-Y$?

comment Equivalent definition of purely inseparable field extension concerning extensions of morphisms.
Thanks Martin. My hypothesis includes that $K/F$ is finite, hence algebraic. So is it correct to conclude that your third paragraph in fact proves the claim in greater generality? Supposing $K/F$ is finite from the start, one could just jump to the last three sentences of your answer, right?

comment When is $ 0\to\mathbb{Z}/n\mathbb{Z}\to\mathbb{Z}/nm\mathbb{Z}\to\mathbb{Z}/m\mathbb{Z}\to 0$ split?
Thanks for answering, I thought the obvious choice would be the right choice, but I guess I was wrong!
