if (2 q) is one factor of 4  2q  6p + 3pq, what is the other factor?
a) 2 + 3p
b) 2  3p
c)3p  2
d) 2  3q

You can use long division
(4  2q  6p + 3pq)/(2q)
2
2*(2q) = 42q
subtract result is
6 p + 3 q
divide by (2q)
3p
3p(2q) = 6p +3pq
subtract, result is zero (remainder is 0
so
23p is the other factor
