(5) Suppose A is a nitely generated abelian group. (a) Compute A Z Q . (b) Dene f : A A Z Q by setting f ( a ) = a 1 for all a A . Show that f is a homomorphism. Under what circumstances if f a monomorphism? (6) If A is an abelian group show that Z n Z A = A/nA . (7) If K M N 0 is an exact sequence of left R-modules and L is a right R-module show that L R K L R M L R N 0 is an exact sequence of abelian groups....
