This post received KUDOS
Median of u,2u,3u,4u,5u,6u, and 7u is 4u
We can test any numbers if u=1/2 A is bigger, if u=2 B is bigger

The answer must be D, it is true that the median is 4u so if we put u equall to 8 the result will be a positive number which is greater than A, and if we put u equal to a positive number then B is greater than A!!

A. Quantity A is greater B. Quantity B is greater. C. The two quantities are equal D. The relationship cannot be determined from the information given. kudo for the right solution and explanationA = median of u,2u,3u,4u,5u,6u, and 7u = 4u B = u so we have to compare u and 4u... If u is NEGATIVE. 4u>u If u is POSITIVE, u>4u Therefore, the relation cannot be ascertained. D
