We need the value of P-T ?

(1) for weeks P,Q,R and S the average ( arithmetic mean) number of first time jobless claimed was 388,250. This means that P+Q+R+S = 4 * 388,250 Clearly insuff.

(2) for weeks Q,R,S and T, the average ( arithmetic mean) number of first time jobless claimed was 383,000 This means that Q+R+S+T = 4 * 383,000 Again clearly insuff.

Together substract 2 from 1. We get P+Q+R+S - (Q+R+S+T) = 4 (388250 - 383000) we get P - Q = 4 * (388250 - 383000)

Hi all,

Im not sure if Im getting the true logic of this question. The question asks to find the the individual difference between P and T. And from two statements, we are given the sum for weeks P,Q,R and S AND weeks Q,R,S and T. If we minus these two, what we get is the overall difference between the two categories as ( P,Q,R and S) and (Q,R,S and T). This should not be sufficient to give a definite answer since lets assume that P is 1 and the other categories make up to the rest of the sum and T is 3 and the other categories make up to the of that set. In that case we will have P<T. However if we assume the reverse, the result changes. Hence, I think the answer should be E.

What am I missing?

I appreciate your help!

Regards, HK
