# Answer to Question #24790 in Abstract Algebra for Alanazi

Question #24790
Q 1)
Let I and J be (left or right or two-sided) ideals of a ring R. We define their product IJ to be a set {x1y1 + . . . + xnyn | xi &isin; I, yj &isin; J}.
Show that the set IJ is again an (left, right or two-sided) ideal. Moreover, show that (IJ)K = I(JK) for any ideal I, J, K of R

Q 2)
The composition &prime;◦&prime; satisfies the following two axioms
1. (associativity) If f: A &rarr; B, g: B &rarr; C and h: C &rarr; D, then h ◦ (g ◦ f) = (h ◦ g) ◦ f.
2. (identity) For every object A &isin; ob(C) there exists a map 1A : A &rarr; A called the identity map for A, such that for every morphism f : A &rarr; B we have 1B ◦ f = f ◦ 1A = f
Show using the axioms that the identity map is unique for every object.

Q3)
Check that R[G] satisfies the ring axioms.(R[G] is
a group ring of G over R).

IJ = {x1y1 + . . . + xnyn | xi &isin; I, yj &isin; J}.

r * (x1y1 + . . . + xnyn) = (r*x1)y1 + . . . + (r*xn)yn &isin; IJ, since r*x_i &isin; I
x1y1 + . . . + xnyn + x&#039;1y&#039;1 + . . . + x&#039;ny&#039;n &isin; IJ

So, if I is left ideal then IJ os left ideal too.
Right case is similar.

Associativity I(JK)=(IJ)K follows from associativity of multiplication and can be proved on monoms, and then be extended to the whole
sums.

Suppose object A have two identity maps: 1 and 1&#039;. Then
1=1 * 1&#039; = 1&#039; * 1 =1&#039;, so it is unique.

Elements of RG are sums of type x1g1 + ...+ xngn, where g_i are from group G.
If we have element xg, then its opposite will be (-x)g, and 0=0g is zero.
Axioms of abelian group now follows immediately.
Associativity of composition follows from associativity of elements in ring R and group G.
Distributive laws can be proved on monoms.
For example:
ag1(bg2+cg3)=abg1g2+acg1g3=ag1 * bg2 + ag1 * cg3.

So, RG will be a ring.
