n=4p

since n = 4p then even divisors are:

4p/4p = 1

4p/2p = 2

4p/4 = p

4p/2 = 2p

so the answer is (C)

umm..lets see..

n=4p where p is a prime >2

lets pick a number 3..

n=12

even divisors are 0, 2, 4, 6

zero is not a divisor of 12 since 12/0 is undefined ! but 12 is a divisor of 12.

so 2,4,6,12.

Can someone please explain their answer to this


C. +ve even divisors = 2, 4, 2p and 4p. altogather 4.
+ve divisors = 1, 2, 4, p, 2p and 4p. altogather 6.

Since we cannot have two correct answers just pick a prime greater than 2, and see how many different positive even divisors will 4p have.

p = 3 --> 4p = 12--> 12 has 4 even divisors: 2, 4, 6, and 12.

Answer: C.

Or this way: since p is prime greater than 2, then p=odd, thus 4p=even, which means that it has 4 even divisors: 2, 4, 2p, and 4p.
