I am reading Dummit and Foote Chapter 15, Section 15.1: Noetherian Rings and Affine Algebraic Sets.
Exercise 9 reads as follows:
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
For k a field show that any subring of a polynomial ring k[x] containing k is Noetherian.
Give an example to show that such subrings need not be UFDs.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Can someone please help me get started on this problem?
