AS the group is recording a 'non-clemature' on this issue, I will give the
group a hint:

It invovles the mod operator (as Cilla would say, Surprise!, Surprise!).

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?
