hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

i was reading about finitely generated ideals

and there was a remark that ideal which consists of polynomials with no constant term, in the polynomial ring Z[x_1,x_2,x_3,,,,,,] , is not finitely generated.

and i can not show it is not finitely generated

any idea?
