common divisors of p^3q^2 and p^2qr?
For my online assignment, one of the questions is:

What are the common divisors of p^3q^2 and p^2qr

I input 1, p, p^2, q, pq, p^2q, but that answer is incorrect

Hey man, is this a graded online assignment?

Yes, but I am not asking for the answer, I am asking for help. I already attempted the problem twice and I have 1 attempt left. The only common divisors that I see are: 1, p, p^2, q, pq, p^2q.

from the forum rules:

6. Do not cheat. Teachers expect questions that form part of an assessment that contributes towards the final grade of a student to be the work of that student and not the work of others. For that reason, MHF policy is to not knowingly help with such questions. If a question presents in such a way as to suggest that it falls in this category, a Moderator will Close the thread (with an explanation as to why the thread was closed). The original poster can always send a pm to the Moderator to discuss the situation but if the Moderator is unconvinced, then the thread will remain closed. When a Moderator is certain that a particular member is attempting to cheat, that member will be banned and the offending thread removed. Where possible, the institute at which the member studies at will also be notified and a copy of the thread provided. This may sound harsh but the fact is that MHF places a high premium on academic honesty and integrity.

1) This is an online HOMEWORK assignment not an assessment like a quiz or a test. There is a limited number of attempts for the problems so students don't just keep guessing until they get the answer correct.

2) The professor said that we can use our notes, get help from other students, or other resources for help.

3) I am NOT simply asking for the answer, but rather a guide to the right direction. I am not cheating or trying to cheat by any means.
