Integral Domains: Products of Irreducibles

  1. Apr 6, 2006 #1
    I'm suppose to find an integral domain where NOT every element (not a unit) is expressible as a finite product of irreducibles.

    I'm not sure where to begin, actually. So perhaps someone can give me a tip, and we can start working our way through this. Thanks..

    Thank you anyway, all. Since I have other algebra problems that I need help on, I'm going to include this problem in another thread, joining all the problems.
