Therefore both f ( x ) and g ( x ) are not multiples of p ( x ), and f ( x ) 6 0 (mod p ( x )) and g ( x ) 6 0 (mod p ( x )). But f ( x ) g ( x ) = p ( x ) 0 (mod p ( x )). 5.2.2 5.2.6 Every element in Q [ x ] / ( x 2 2) has the form [ a + bx ] for a,b Q . Addition is evident: [ a + bx ] + [ c + dx ] = [( a + c ) + ( b + d ) x ]. For multiplication we get: [ a + bx ] [ c + dx ] = [ ac + bcx + adx + bdx 2 ] = [ ac + bdx 2 +( 2 bd +2 bd )+ adx + bcx ] = [ ac + bd ( x 2 2) + 2 bd ) + adx + bcx ] = [ ac...
