387

I was thinking if p is any prime number greater than, isn't there no upper limits to p? Can anyone try?

If n = 4p, where p is a prime number greater than 2, how many different positive even divisors does n have, including n?

a. 2
b. 3
c. 4
d. 6
e. 8

C)4 take some prime numbers and derive the divisors like let p=3 then n=12 and the divisors are 2,4,6 and 12, I think it works with any prime number greater than 2

4 is divisible by 1,2,4
so 4n is divisible by 1,2,4 and n where n is prime.
Total divisors = 4
