Also, an inverse of the product for any number in the ring is another number or itself that can be multiplied with it and yield 1. In a field, all the numbers have an inverse, but in zeta 6 (for example), which is not a field the only numbers that have an inverse are 1 and 5, in this case being themselves. Not sure I got everything down. What are these numbers called, btw? I am studying abroad in Spain, and in Spanish they are "unidades" but I don't know what they are in English.

Thanks.
