Abstract: If $ I$ is an ideal containing a monic polynomial in $ R[T]$ where $ R$ is a semilocal ring, then $ I$ and $ I/{I^2}$ require the same minimal number of generators. An ideal containing a monic polynomial in a polynomial ring need not possess any minimal set of generators having a monic as a part of it.
