A) Quantity A is greater.
B) Quantity B is greater.
C) The two quantities are equal.
D) The relationship cannot be determined from the information given.
I've never solved this correctly in practise, however, I just saw this today and my solution to get C is below:
QTY A = 400%, adding all the cocoa mixtures = 240%. So 240/400 = 3/5
QTY B = 300%, adding all the cocoa = 180%. So 180/300 = 3/5
Hope this helps someone who struggled with this as much as I did.
