Unformatted text preview: Algebra Qualifying Examination January, 21100 Directions: 1. Answer all questions. {Total possible is 10!] points.) 2. Start each outstion on s new sheet of paper. 3. Write only on one side of each sheet of paper. Policy on Misprints: The Qualifying Exam Committee tries to proofread the exams as carefully as possible. Nevertheless, the em may contain a few misprints. If you are oonirineed a problem has been stated incorrectly, indicate your interpretation in writing your answer. In such cases. do not interpret the problem in such a way that it becomes trivial. Notes: 1. All rings are unitary. All modules are unitary. 2.

    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.
