Prove that every ideal of F[x], where F is any field, is principal

An ideal I of a commutative ring R is said to be principal if it is generated by a single element, that is, if I is of the form {ra|r element of R} for some fixed a element of R. Notice that Corollary 6.6 (below) shows that ideals of F[x] of the form I_F,a are principal. Now prove that every ideal of F[x], where F is any fi
