A. The quantity in Column A is greater
B. The quantity in Column B is greater
C. The two quantities are equal
D. The relationship cannot be determined from the information given
Kudos for correct
solution.
No information is given for x and it can be fraction or real number, so option D
Real numbers include fractions, irrational numbers and integers. I think you meant "integer" instead. But even if we were given that x is a non-integer (a fraction or an irrational number) or integer, the answer still would be D.
If we rearrange we are left with quantity A being 8x and quantity B being 8. Then, since there are no restrictions about x, it can be whatever.
E.g. if x = 1, then the two quantities are equal
if x = -2, then quantity B is greater
if x = 2, then quantity A is greater.
Thus the answer is D
