Math 4124 Monday, April 25 Tenth Homework Due 2:30 p.m., Monday May 2 1. Let R be a commutative ring with a 1 = 0, and let S denote the set of nonzerodivisors of R (that is { s R | sr = 0 for all r R \ 0 } ). (a) Prove that S is a multiplicatively closed subset of R which contains 1 but not 0. (b) Prove that every element of S - 1 R is either a unit (that is, u such that uv = 1 for some v ) or a zero divisor (zero divisor includes 0). (3 points) 2. Let R be a commutative ring with a 1. Suppose there exist ring epimorphisms
