Quantity A: \((4\sqrt{(5a)})^2\)
Quantity B: 40a


Quantity A:
[4√(5a)]² = [4√(5a)][4√(5a)]
= (16)(5a)
= 80a

So, we have:
Quantity A: 80a
Quantity B: 40a

Subtract 40a from both quantities to get:
Quantity A: 40a
Quantity B: 0

Divide both quantities by 40 to get:
Quantity A: a
Quantity B: 0

The given information tells us that a > 0, so the correct answer is
[Reveal] Spoiler:
A
