Hello everyone, I was wondering if I could get some advice for the following problem:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have two algebraic sets X, X', i.e. X = V(J), Y = V(J'), and let I(X),I(Y) be the ideals of these sets, i.e. I(X) ={x [itex]\in[/itex] X | f(x) = 0 for all x [itex]\in X[/itex]}. I am trying to show that I(X [itex]\cap[/itex] Y) is not always equal to I(X) + I(Y), so I have tried many examples of ideals of [itex]\mathbb{C}[X][/itex] but I am not getting anywhere.

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks
