Box W and Box V each contain several blue sticks and red sticks,

and all of the red sticks have the same length. The length of each red

stick is 19 inches less that the average length of the sticks in Box W

and 6 inches greater than the average length of the sticks in Box V.

What is the average (arithmetic mean) length, in inches, of the sticks

in Box W minus the average length, in inches, of the sticks in Box V?

(A) 3

(B) 6

(C) 12

(D) 18

(E) 24

length(red) = average(W) - 19

length(red) = average(V) + 6

average(W) - average(V) = 6+19=25 -> closest to E
