Hello friends, abstract algebra is not my cup of tea so I was wondering if you could help me to solve these two exercises.

1.-Let $\displaystyle R$ be a commutative ring and unitary. Prove that $\displaystyle R$ is a R-module.

2.- Let M be a R-module and let N be a R-submodule of M. Prove that the canonical homomorphism, $\displaystyle c: M ---> M/N$ defined by the formula: $\displaystyle c(m) = m + N$, is a R-epimorphism with kernel N.

Thank you SO MUCH
