Serge Ballif MATH 535 Homework 11 November 30, 2007 1-2) Let I be an ideal of the ring R , and let M, N be R -modules such that IN = 0 . Then show that, as R/I modules, M R N M/IM R/I N with the isomorphism “given by” m R n 7→ [ m ] R/I n . Remark: Be sure to base your argument on the Universal Mapping Property of tensor products. For example, you may induce maps between the two sides via their universal mapping properties and show that the isomorphism satisfies the property stated. Or you may simply show that one object satisfies the Universal Mapping Property of the other. (Recall the strict warning against trying to define maps from M R N by what they do on elements m R n .) Although nothing much exciting is going on, it is beneficial to work through such an example to gain experience in dealing with tensor products. Claim 1. M R N is an R/I -module. Proof. Scalar multiplication is this case is given by ( r + I )( m n ) = rm n = m rn . This map is well defined because for r + i = r 0 we have [ r 0 ]( m n ) = ( r + i )( m n ) = ( rm + im ) n = rm n + im n = rm n + m in = rm n = [ r ]( m n ) . M R N satisfies the properties of being an R/I module as a consequence of the fact that it is an R -module.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
