There is a problem in a book I'm not quite understanding.

Let M be an R-module and let I=Ann(M). Show that M can be regarder as an R/I-Module where scalar multiplication is given by the rule m(I+r)=mr

I don't understand what they mean by "regarded as". Am I suppose to show there is an isomorphism? (I don't know how to do that between modules over different rings), or just a bijection? Should I create a one-to-one mapping from the scalars R to R/I instead?

Any help is appreciated
