Hi Sandy, please can you provide the working solution for this? I assume Qty A is 9/16 of C which should invariably be lesser than 4/3 of C (Qty B). Thank you Intern Joined: 10 Apr 2018

plug in 0 in both statements. Then quantity A will be equal to quantity B. since B is not always greater than A, we should choose D.

btw I also thought that 4/3(c) must be greater than 9/16(c), I completely forgot about 0 being an integer too hahaha Re: For the integers a, b, and c, the sum of a and b is 75% of c   [#permalink] 28 May 2018, 02:10
