(a) The degree of the extension is the order of the Galois group, which is 8. (b) This is equivalent to asking for the number of subgroups of order 2 of Z 2 ⊕ Z 4 . Each element of order 2 generates such a group. The elements of order 2 are (0 , 2), (1 , 0) and (1 , 2). Thus the answer is 3. (b) This is equivalent to [ E : K ] = 4 and so we need subgroups of order 4. They are { } + Z 4 , { (0 , 0) , (1 , 1) , (0 , 2) , (1 , 3) } , { (0 , 0) , (0 , 2) , (1 , 0) , (1 , 2) } , and so the answer is also 3. (c) The answer is zero since [ E : K ] must divide [ E : Q ] = 8. Alternatively the answer is zero since a group of order 8 cannot have a subgroup of order 3. 2. (a) Ideals are closed under multiplication by elements of R and by addition. Thus a i b i ∈ B and the sum of such terms is also in B . Likewise, they are in....
