If p^2 is exactly divisible by p+q, then proof q^2 is exactly divisible by p+q.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

How do I proof this, and how do I apply the remainder theorem?

I know if f(x) = x^2 + 2x + 1, since f(-1) = 0 there fore (x + 1) is a factor of f(x).

So in this case

p^2 = p x p or p^2 x 1...
