I am seeking to understand Rings of Fractions and Fields of Fractions - and hence am reading Dummit and Foote Section 7.5
Exercise 3 in Section 7.5 reads as follows:
Let F be a field. Prove the F contains a unique smallest subfield and that is isomorphic to either or for some prime p. (Note: is called prime subfield of F.)
Can anyone help with this exercise.
