Since we want to find out how many pages 5 dollars will buy us, we can just divide it by 15 cents to get quantity A.

Quantity A:\(\frac{$5.00}{0.15}\)
Quantity B: 34

Quantity A:\(33.3\)
Quantity B: 34

Quantity B is greater.

The answer is Quantity B.


*If you're a logical person like me, you chose C) the Quantities are equal. Since you can't print out .3 pieces of paper, it should still count as one whole piece of paper right? However, we shouldn't look too much into the equation, but just enough to answer the question. Be careful!

Since you cannot print out 0.3 page, you can print out only 33 pages in this case and thats why the answe is B. You need to think practically. If you were using a 'paid printer', in this case, if you put in 5 bucks, it will give out 33 pages and the remaining 5 cents will go back on your card.
