Simple ring/ideal query
I have in my notes that (2X,5) is an ideal of Z[X], but I can't see why this can be so.
For example 5+2X is in (2X,5) and 7+X is in Z[X] but then
19 is not divisible by 2 and so this element is not in (2X,5), contradicting the "absorbance" property of ideals.

You seem to believe that any element in [itex](2x,5)[/itex] must have an even lineal coefficient, but this is wrong: the 5 there can multiply some x-coeff. of some
pol. and added to the even coefficient in the other factor we get an odd coef.
For example, the element [itex]2x\cdot 1 + 5\cdot x = 7x[/itex] belongs to the ideal...
