## Homework Statement

Prove that if f:R-R' is a ring homomorphism, then

a) f(R) is a subring of R'

b) ker f= f[tex]^{-1}[/tex](0) is a subring of R

c) if R has 1 and f:R-R is a ring epimorphism, then f(1[tex]_{R}[/tex])=1[tex]_{R'}[/tex]

## Homework Equations

For a ring homomorphism,

f(a+b)= f(a) + f(b)

f(ab)= f(a)f(b)

## The Attempt at a Solution

In order to show something is a subring of something else, do I just show that the former satisfies the properties of a ring?

Like in a), would I show that f(R) is a ring?

I just need a little guidance please.
