Step 1
To decide whether Z(5) is unique factorization domain or not.
Step 2
Note that For a integral domain R to be unique factorization domain one of the property is:
where p and q are irreducible in R then m=n and each pi is associative of some qj.
Step 3
Here note that 46Z[5] is an non-zero and non-unit element and 46 can be expressed as:
46=2*23, and
but 2 is not associative of (135),or(1+35)
Hence, Z[5] is not unique factorization domain.
