Area of circle = π(radius)²

So, if the radius is 1/4, then area = π(1/4)² = π(1/16) = π/16

In other words, x = π/16

So, we get: Quantity A: π/16 Quantity B: 1/4

If we're not sure what to do here, a quick approach is to use matching operations

Multiply both quantities by 16 to get: Quantity A: π Quantity B: 4

Since π ≈ 3.14, we can see that Quantity B is greater.

Answer: B
