Here,
We can write \(\frac{n * 10^3}{10^5} = \frac{n}{10^2} = \frac{105.873}{10^2} = 1.05873\)

SO QTY A > QTY B

Let's first see what needs to happen for the two quantities to be EQUAL

That is, we want \(\frac{n * 10^3}{10^5}\) and \(1\) to be EQUAL

We get: \(\frac{n * 10^3}{10^5}=1\)

Multiply both sides by \(10^5\) to get: \((n)(10^3)=10^5\)

Divide both sides by \(10^3\) to get: \((n)=\frac{10^5}{10^3}=10^2=100\)

So, if n equals 100, then the two quantities are EQUAL

Since n actually equals 105.873, we know that Quantity A must be greater than Quantity B

Answer: A

Cheers,
Brent
