HW Question

  1. Dec 16, 2004 #1
    Hello all, first time to the site and its very helpful! I wish I would have found it sooner.
    I am stuck on quotient rings. Here is my question..

    How do I find elements of a quotient ring?

    It asks me to list all elements of a quotient ring.

    Anybody have any ideas how i can find them? :confused:

    You'll have to state the question.
    And by the way, I think these questions (that is, HW questions) should be asked several forums above.

    In your quotient ring, all the elements look like p(x)+I. Now you know for a given element in the quotient ring, you can take many different p(x)'s as it's representative. Try to take the one with the smallest degree.
