I am reading Paul E. Bland's book, "Rings and Their Modules".(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am focused on Chapter 1, Section 1.4 Modules ... ...

I need help with the proving a statement Bland makes in Example 13 ... ...

Example 13 reads as follows:

In the above text from Bland, we read the following:

" ... If ##N## is a maximal submodule of ##M##, then it follows that ##M/N## is a simple ##R##-module ... ... "

I do not understand why this is true ... can anyone help with a formal proof of this statement ...

Hope someone can help ...
