If p, q and r are positive integers and 2p + 3q = r, do r and 6 have a common factor greater than 1?

(1) p is a multiple of 3.
Let p = 3x
\(2p+3q=r...........2*3x+3q=r.........3(2x+q)=r\)
So r is a multiple of 3 and 6 is also multiple of 3, so Ans is YES
Sufficient

(2) q is a multiple of 3.
Let q=3y...
\(2p+3q=r...........2p+3*3y=r\)
Let p be a multiple of 3 then r is a multiple of 3 OR if y=2, r is a multiple of 2 and 6 is also multiple of 2 and 3
In each of the cases above, ans is YES
But say p=2 and y=3 r = 2*2+3*3*3=31, so 31 and 6 do not have common factors other than 1
Insufficient
