D, agree
1 distance from -x to x is 16 means that distance from x to 0 is 16/2 and x is 8th point_suff
2 distance from x to 3x (3x-x=2x) is 16, if 2x =16=> x = 8_suf

It is a clear D

We need to find X (3X-2X)

So if we can compute X from either of the statements we are fine.

From 1=> 2X=16 => x=8
From 2 => 2X=16=> X=8

Prasanna

We need to find difference

3X-2X

We can factor out X

X(3-2)

X(1)

X

So all we need to do is find any statement that gives us X.

Both statements do that nicely.
