I did not say the product implies the sum.  I said the sum implies the product. 

Which is equivalent to the contrapositive:
If the product cannot be then the sum cannot be done. 

We don't need to check 12 and 18 because their product is a cube. 

I was hoping to be able to show p,p or that p,p^(3n+1) reduces to p,p etc.
