    finitely generated module & algebra

    Let A be finitely generated as a R-algebra.

    Then can I say A is finitely generated as a R-module?

    I cannot understand some part of definitions about finitely generated...

    The polynomial algebra \mathbb{R}[x] is finitely generated as an \mathbb{R}-algebra, but it is NOT

    a finitely generated \mathbb{R}-module...

    ** f.g. algebra = all the elements are finite sums of finite products of some elements in the algebra

    ** f.g. module = all the elements are finite sums AND PRODUCTS BY SCALARS of some elements in the module.
