Ideal and subring

please I want help with that
Consider the ring Mn(R) ofn x n matrices over R, a ring with identity. A square matrix (aij) is said to be upper triangular if aij = 0 for i > j and strictly upper triangular if aij = 0 for i > or equal  j. Let Tn(R) and Tn^s(R) denote the sets of all upper triangular and strictly upper triangular matrices in Mn(R), respectively. Prove each of the following:
a) Tn(R) and Tn^s(R) are both subrings of Mn(R).
b) Tn^s(R) is an ideal of the ring Tn(R).
