(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

If R is a PID then all its ideals can be generated by a single element. It dosen't imply that every element in R can generate an ideal does it?

3. The attempt at a solution

I have to agree that it dosen't but can't think of a proof.
