If I is a left ideal in R , then R=I is an R module with the action r.r 1 C I/ D rr 1 C I . All of the homomorphism theorems for groups and rings have ana-logues for modules. Each of the theorems is proved by invoking the analo-gous theorem for abelian groups and then by checking that the homomor-phisms respect the R actions. Theorem 8.2.5. (Homomorphism theorem for modules). Let ' W M ! P be a surjective homomorphism of R modules with kernel N . Let W M ! M=N be the quotient homomorphism. There is an R module isomorphism Q ' W M=N ! P satisfying Q ' D ' . (See the following diagram.)...
