## Factorization

Thank you, I think I understand. But if p_i=(p,f_i(a)) is a maximal ideal, is (p) the prime ideal? And where do principal ideals come into this?

For example in exam paper 2002, question 3 says to factorise into prime ideals. Is the answer ? And on question 4 we are factorising into maximal ideals, is this the same method?

I hope this makes sense!

Thanks

You should review chapters 16 to 21 very thoroughly. I’ve also written up some
