I have another question about ring theory.

Let KK b a field, with p>0p>0 its characteristic. Define the set T= {xK:xpn=x}T= {x∈K:xpn=x}. I had to prove that |T|pn|T|≤pn.

Research effort

We may assume that pp is prime, because otherwise the ring would have zero divisors. The exercise stated that TT itself is a field. I tried several things to prove the statement above. First of all xT  xpn=x  x(xp211)=0  x=0  or  x usr_profile.png
