Mark seems to have the lowest salary, so let's ....

Let x = Mark's hourly wage

Mary’s wage is $2 per hour more than Mark’s wage.
So, x + 2 = Mary's hourly wage

Andy’s wage is $6 per hour more than Mark’s wage.
So, x + 6 = Andy's hourly wage


Anne’s wage is $10 per hour more than Mary’s wage.
x + 2 = Mary's hourly wage
So, (x+2) + 10 = Anne’s hourly wage
Simplify to get: x + 12 = Anne’s hourly wage

We get:
Quantity A: x + 12
Quantity B: x + 6

We can see that Quantity A is greater.

A
