Let R be a semiprime ring and let F, f : R → R be (not necessarily additive) maps satisfying F(xy)=F(x)y+xf(y) for all x,y R. Suppose that there are integers m and n such that F(uv)=mF(u)F(v)+nF(v)F(u) for all u, v in some nonzero ideal I of R. Under some mild assumptions on R, we prove that there exists c C(I⊥⊥) such that c=(m+n)c2, nc[I⊥⊥, I⊥⊥]=0 and F(x)=cx for all x I⊥⊥. The main result is then applied to the case when F is multiplicative or anti-multiplicative on I.
