t>1, so lets assume t = 2
Qty A: (2(2)+5)/3= 9/3=3
Qty B: 3(2) = 6
In this case, Qty B is greater.
Lets assume t = 1.1
QTY A: (2.2+5)/3= 7.2/3=2.4
Qty B: 3.3
So, in all the cases, Qty B is greater.

We can solve this question using matching operations

Given:
Quantity A: \(\frac{2t+5}{3}\)

Quantity B: \(3t\)


Multiply both quantities by 3 to get:
Quantity A: \(2t+5\)

Quantity B: \(9t\)


Subtract 2t from both quantities to get:
Quantity A: \(5\)

Quantity B: \(7t\)


Divide both quantities by 7 to get:
Quantity A: \(\frac{5}{7}\)

Quantity B: \(t\)


Since we're told \(t > 1\), we know that \(t>\frac{5}{7}\)

Answer: B
