Find the sum of all even factors of 2160

Q.)What is the sum of all the even factors of 2160?
(i)10800
(ii)3600
(iii)7200
(iv)14400
=>
2160 = 5*{ 2 }^{ 4 }*{ 3 }^{ 3 }

Sum of all the even factors ={ (5 }^{ 0 }+{ 5 }^{ 1 })({ 2 }^{ 1 }+{ 2 }^{ 1 }+{ 2 }^{ 1 }+{ 2 }^{ 1 })({ 3 }^{ 0 }+{ 3 }^{ 1 }+{ 3 }^{ 2 }+{ 3 }^{ 3 })

=(\frac { { 5 }^{ 2 }-1 }{ 5-1 } )(\frac { { 2(2 }^{ 4 }-1) }{ 2-1 } )(\frac { { 3 }^{ 4 }-1 }{ 3-1 } )

=6*30*40 =7200.

As the sum is to be found out only for even factors, so 2 always has to be included. So the sum started with { 2 }^{1 }.
Option(iii)
