Since both the plots have equal, let it be X and we know the larger the denominator the smaller the number

QTY A = Area divided by 16 =\(\frac{X}{16}\)

QTY B = Area divided by 20 = \(\frac{X}{20}\)

Therefore QTY A > QTY B

** any number be also be taken in place of X, but the result will be the same as X is same for both plots
