If (2 -q) is one factor of 4 - 2q - 6p + 3pq, what is the other factor?
a)2 - 3p
b)3p - 2
c)2 + 3p
d)2 - 3q
Since the resulting product contains 4 and 3pq, and we know that one factor is (2-q), we can conclude that we need a +2 (=4/2) and -3p (= 3pq/-q)in the other factor.
Make you choice and multiply out to confirm your answer.
