let r be a commutative ring, I ideal in R and P r-module.

how should i prove that P/IP is module over R/I for multiplying (r+I,p+IP)-->rp+IP

and if P projective R-module, i have to prove P/IP is projective R/I-module

thanks

The same way you prove anything is a module. Make sure your multiplication is well-defined, and most of the other properties you don't have to check because P/IP is an R-module.

if P projective R-module, i have to prove P/IP is projective R/I-module

Any projective module is a direct summand of a free module.

"In the real world, this would be a problem. But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist. So we'll go ahead and do that now..."
