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 (2q), 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.
