PLEASE FORMAT THE QUESTIONS PROPERLY!

Also what do you mean by "What i will the s-t either s minus t or s to t"?

Original question is:

On the number line, if r<s, if p is halfway between r and s, and if t is halfway between p and r then (s-t)/(t-r)=
A. 1/4
B. 1/3
C. 4/3
D. 3
E. 4

Let r=0 and s=4 --> p is halfway between r and s: p=2;
t is halfway between p=2 and r=0: t=1;

(s-t)/(t-r)=(4-1)/(1-0)=3.

Answer: D.

P.S. On the GMAT we can often see such statement: $$k$$ is halfway between $$m$$ and $$n$$ on the number line. Remember this statement can ALWAYS be expressed algebraically as: $$\frac{m+n}{2}=k$$.

Question is: $$\frac{s-t}{t-r}=?$$.
