Every torsion module over a principal ideal domain is the direct sum of its p-primary components

Let R be a principal ideal domain and let N be a torsion R-module. Prove that the p-primary component of N is a submodule for every prime p \in R. Prove that N is the direct sum of its p-primary components.


We proved this in a previous exercise.
