      Hi Sudarshan,

      Yep. If 6a+/-1 is composite, then all its factors are of the form 6b+/-1. In
      this particular case, 6b+/-1 is a prime factor, but I tend to use factor to
      imply factor, and divisor to imply a non-prime factor.

      what do you mean by a factor, do you mean that 6b+/-1 is a factor of
      6a+/-1????

      If 6a+/-1 is composite, and 6b+/-1 is a factor, what is the connection
      between a and b?
