Hello, I would really apreciate some help with this... f is a ring homomorphism between two commutative rings A and B. So f: A >B S is a multiplicatively closed subset of A. Define T:= f(S) then T is a multiplicatively closed subset of B. The book says that there is a homomorphism ,say h, between the ring of fractions S^(1)B and T^(1)B which sends b/s to b/f(s). In fact this is an isomorphism. And S^(1)B and T^(1)B are isomorphic as S^(1)Amodules. I already get stuck at this: h((b1/s1) + (b2/s2))= h ((b1s2 + b2s1)/s1s2)= (b1s2 + b2s1)/f(s1s2) = (b1s2)/(f(s1)f(s2)) + (b2s1)/(f(s1)f(s2)) how is this equal to h(b1/s1) + h(b2/s2) can I do this: (b1s2)/(f(s1)f(s2)) = (b1/f(s1)) s2(1/f(s2))= (b1/f(s1)) s2(f(1)/f(s2)) = (b1/f(s1)) (f(s2)/f(s2)) ???
