(In reply to re: Solution (a few questions) by ken)

When I refered to "both factors", I was refering to (pq-1) and f as in the prevoius statement.  As to your second point, it seems I have some more work to do.  I was getting cross-eyed looking at all the p's, q's, and n's when I was working on this problem, maybe I will have a solution tomorrow.
