Lemma 10.108.3. Let $R$ be a ring. If $I, J \subset R$ are pure ideals, then $V(I) = V(J)$ implies $I = J$.

** Pure ideals are determined by their vanishing locus. **

**Proof.**
For example, by property (7) of Lemma 10.108.2 we see that $I = \mathop{\mathrm{Ker}}(R \to \prod _{\mathfrak p \in V(I)} R_{\mathfrak p})$ can be recovered from the closed subset associated to it.
