Abstract: Let $ D$ be an integral domian with identity. If for some positive integer $ n$, each finitely generated ideal of $ D$ has a basis of $ n$ elements, then the integral closure of $ D$ is a Prüfer domain. This result generalizes to the case of commutative rings with identity that contain zero divisors.
