    Commuting Homomorphisms

    Let phi: R-->R' be a ring homomorphism, I an ideal of R, J an ideal of R' and suppose that phi(I) is a subset of J. Let f and g be the natural homomorphisms, f:R-->R/I and g:R'-->R'/J defined by, f(r) = r+I for all r in R and g(r')=r'+J for all r' in R'.
    Now, define a homomorphism h:R/I-->R'/J, prove that h is well-defined, that it is in fact a homomorphism and finally that for all x in R, hf(x)=gphi(x)

    define h(x+I)=\phi(x) + J, \ \forall x \in R. this map is well-defined because \phi(I) \subseteq J. it's a homomorphism because \phi is a homomorphism and finally hf(x)=h(x+I)=\phi(x) + J=g\phi(x), \ \forall x \in R.
