We are asked for consecutive even numbers which sum to 20. Thus, we can generalize the sum as n+(n+2)+(n+4)+(n+6)+(n+8) = 20 because even numbers are one every two consecutive numbers. Then, we can get the value of the smallest, n, solving 5n+20 = 20, from which we get n = 0.

The product of the median times the smallest even integer, whatever is the median is 0 because the smallest integer is zero.

Answer E
