Distance between X and Y on a number line = | X - Y |

1) The distance between r and 0 is 3 times the distance between m and 0.

| r | = 3 x | m |

r = -3m or 3m

Insufficient.

2) 12 is halfway between m and r.

( m + r ) / 2 = 12

m + r = 24

1 & 2) The distance between r and 0 is 3 times the distance between m and 0, and 12 is halfway between m and r.

If r = -3m, m + r = -3m + m = -2m = 24 ---> m = -12, r = 36
If r = 3m, m + r = 3m + m = 4m = 24 ---> m = 6, r = 18

Insufficient.

I vote for (E).[/b]
