    Groups rings and fields

    I've been given a question on an homework sheet, but i just don't know how to begin to answer it, even though it seems like it should be easy.

    Is there a field of order 6? give reasons.

    any help would be much appreciated, even if it's just the beginning of an answer.

    A finite field must be a power of a prime.
