I understand that the Ring Axioms is 1. (R,+) is an albein group. 2. Multiplication is associative and 3. Multiplication distributes. I just don't understand how to go about this. A First Course in Abstract Algebra by John Fraleigh fails to show any examples of this type.

2) Let f: Z[√d]→M be an application such that f)x+y√d=A where

[x y]

A = Matrix[yd x]

Show that f is an isomorphism of rings.

I understand that I have to check the conditions of it being isomorphic, but once again the book does not give examples of how to do so. It's hard to attempt problems when I don't know where to begin.
