Answer to Question #16893 in Abstract Algebra for Irvin
Let R be a (left) semisimple ring. Show that, for any right ideal I and any left ideal J in R, IJ = I ∩ J. If I, J, K are ideals in R, prove the following distributive law: I ∩ (J + K) = (I ∩ J) + (I ∩ K)
First, it is clear that IJ ⊆ I and IJ ⊆ J, so IJ ⊆ I ∩ J. To prove the reverse inclusion, write J = Rf where f = f2∈ J. For any a ∈ I ∩ J, write a = rf ∈ I, where r ∈ R. Then a = rf · f ∈ IJ, as desired. Assuming that I, J, K are ideals, we have I ∩ (J + K) = I(J + K) = IJ + IK = (I ∩ J) + (I ∩ K)
Hi Expert, so I wasn't able to try the new version because they closed of the submission portal. Oh well,
but I want to give you my sincerest thank you for helping me throughout this assignment! Honestly, you are an absolute legend! Your line by line explanation was superb and honestly helped me understand most of the concept I learnt during my semester better than my own lecturer! Thank you for consistently helping and being persistent with the versions!
You've honestly been the greatest help and I would have been so lost if it wasn't without your expertise!
So thank you once again!
