    Affine Algebraic Variety.

    Find an ideal $\displaystyle I$ in $\displaystyle K[x,y]$ such that $\displaystyle V(I)$ consists of the point $\displaystyle (1,1)$ and the lines $\displaystyle x=0$ and $\displaystyle y=x+1$

    Any help would be greatly appreciated...

    anyway, to answer the question, you can choose $\displaystyle I=\langle x(y-x-1)(x-1), \ x(y-x-1)(y-1) \rangle.$ then it's easy to see that $\displaystyle V(I)$ is the set you're looking for.

    Why "unfortunately"? My idea was wrong but, perhaps, it could push the OP in the right direction. Anyway, she/he now has the correct answer and can compare. Nothing lost, all is profit. Thanx for the correct answer.
