It is given that (x – m) and (x – km) are simple factors of A (x) :

Let p and q be non-zero integers. Consider the polynomial A (x) = x2 + px + q
It is given that (x – m) and (x – km) are simple factors of A (x), where m is a non-zero integer and k is a positive integer, k>2. Which one of the following is correct?
(a) (k +1)2p2 = kq
(b) (k + 1)2q = kp2
(c) k2q = (k + 1)p2
(d) k2 p2 = (k + 1)2 q
