    Find a function (ideals)

    Hl! I do not understand this exercise

    Recall that \mathbb{R}^\mathbb{R} , the set of all real valued funtions of a real variable, is a commutative ring under pointwise addition and multiplication.
    Let n\geq{0} be an integer, and let I_n be the set of all functions in \mathbb{R}^\mathbb{R} vanishing on integer multiples of n


    Find a function that is in I_8 but not in I_4



    I do not understand why I_n is an ideal and I can not find the function


    Thanks

    $f(x) = \sin \left( \dfrac{\pi}{8} x \right)$

    $f(8n)=0, f(8n+4)=(-1)^n$
