All computations are understood to be occurring in the ring R = Z [ ω ]. (a) 13 ≡ 0 (mod 2 + 3 ω ) Solution: N (2 + 3 ω ) = 2 2- 2 · 3 + 3 2 = 7. If (2 + 3 ω ) q = 13 for some q ∈ R , then by multiplicativity of the norm map, N (2 + 3 ω ) | N (13). Clearly, 7- 13 2 , so FALSE. (b) 20 ≡ 41 (mod 1- ω ) Solution: The assertion is equivalent to 1- ω | (41- 20) = 21. Now N (1- ω ) = 3, so (1- ω ) | 3 | 21, so TRUE.21, so TRUE....
