    f(x)=x^3+x+1 and g(x)=x^3+x^2+1 are irreducible over F_2. K is the field extension obtained by adjoining a root of f and L is the extension obtained by adjoining a root of g. Determine the number of isomorphisms from K to L. (It is not necessary to explicitly describe such an isomorphism)

    f(x)=x^3+x+1 and g(x)=x^3+x^2+1 are irreducible over F_2. K is the field extension obtained by adjoining a root of f and L is the extension obtained by adjoining a root of g. Determine the number of isomorphisms from K to L. (It is not necessary to explicitly describe such an isomorphism)

    Solution: Let K=F_2 (α), where α is a root of f(x)=x^3+x+1.
