sure.

let R = the ring of all 2x2 matrices with integer entries. this is clearly a non-commutative ring (for example, the matrices:

do not commute).

but the matrices of the form:

form a sub-ring of R isomorphic to the integers, which is thus commutative. - Nov 12th 2012, 12:53 AMpuneethaRe: Rings
