Just like in the rational numbers, the image of 6 under the embedding divided by the image of 3 under the embedding yields the image of 2 under the embedding, so in the wheel, the image of 6 under the embedding divided by the image of 3 under the embedding yields the image of 2 under the embedding.

It's not a field. It's a wheel.

Just look at the title of the article.
