    Z60

    The ring Z60 is a field right?

    So a list of all its ideals would be 0 and all the elements in Z60.

    Is this correct?

    And could someone just explain quickly what a homomorphic image is?

    Thank you.

    No, is it to a power of a prime? No it is not.

    A field has no ideal, since this is it not a field it might.
    (Note: I worked on this problem before when you posted it and it got a little messy by looking at all the possible ideal. What I was doing was finding all the cyclic subgorups of this ring because they need to be cyclic for the additive group is cylcic)

    No

    I think you mean when you have a ring homomorphism the image of \phi[R] is a homomorphic image.
