Solutions

Chapter 5.3, Problem 13E
Textbook Problem

Just after the end of the proof of Theorem 5.25 , we noted that the construction in the proof yields a field if we start with a commutative ring that has no zero divisors. Assume this is true, and let F denote the field of quotients of the ring E of all even integers. Prove that F is isomorphic to the field of rational numbers.
