Abstract: Consider a ring $ R$ that satisfies the identity $ (x,x,x) = 0$ and any two of the three identities: $ (wx,y,z) + (w,x,[y,z]) - w(x,y,z) - (w,y,z)x = 0;([w,x],y,z) + (w,x,yz) - y(w,x,z) - (w,x,y)z = 0;(w,x \cdot y,z) - x \cdot (w,y,z) - y \cdot (w,x,z) = 0$. In this paper, we prove that if $ R$ has characteristic prime to 6 then $ R$ semiprime with idempotent $ e$ implies $ R$ has a Peirce decomposition in which the modules multiply as they do in an alternative ring. If in addition $ R$ is prime with idempotent $ e \ne 0,1$ then $ R$ is alternative.
