The numerator of both the quantities is n, and $$n > 0$$

so the denominator with the highest value will yield lower value.

so $$\frac{n}{428} < \frac{n}{107}$$

i.e. Option A < Option B

Hence option B is the answer

Another approach:

Given:
n/x = 428
n/y = 107

Divide the bottom equation into the top equation to get: (n/x)/(n/y) = 428/107

Simplify: (n/x)(y/n) = some number greater than 1

Simplify: y/x = some number greater than 1

Since x and y are POSITIVE, we know that the numerator (y) must be greater than the denominator (x)

Cheers,
Brent
