I am reading Dummit and Foote Chapter 8, Section 8.1 - Euclidean DOmains

I am working through Example 2 on page 273 (see attachment)

Example 2 demonstrates that the quadratic integer ring $\displaystyle \mathbb{Z} [ \surd -5 ]$ is not a Euclidean domain.

I can follow the argument down to the point where D&F state (see attachment)

"Multiplying both sdes by $\displaystyle 2 - \surd -5 $ would then imply that $\displaystyle 2 - \surd -5 $ is a multiple of 3 in R, a contradiction"

================================================== ====================================

I cannot show this point - the mechanics of this fail me... can someone please help
