Let's work exclusively with
fractionsNote:
25% = 25/100 = 1/4
(1/4)% = (1/4)/100 = 1/400
10% = 1/10
So, we get:
Quantity A: (1/4)(1/400)(x)
Quantity B: (1/16)(1/10)(x)
Simplify:
Quantity A: x/1600
Quantity B: x/160
Since the denominator of 160 is LESS THAN the denominator of 1600, x/160 must be greater than x/1600
Answer:
However, if you're not 100% convinced, we can keep going:
Take:
Quantity A: x/1600
Quantity B: x/160
Multiply both quantities by 1600 to get:
Quantity A: x
Quantity B: 10x
Divide both quantities by x to get:
Quantity A: 1
Quantity B: 10
Answer:
Cheers,
Brent
