# Algebra question watch

1. Hey, I'm having difficulty in answering the last part of question 2, the one that reads.."By considering a = 3 − 2 2, prove that the group of invertible elements of Z[ 2] is infinite."

It'd be very much appreciated if someone could provide me With the proof of this as it would help me to understand how to apply it to similar questions! Many thanks for any response ☺️

Moved to maths, please post your question in the maths forum in the future.You essentially want to prove that there are an infinite number of solutions to , them asking you to consider was so you could guess that if is a positive solution to the above equation () then is also another solution - can you prove that this is true? It's just a bunch of plugging in.
