The rate of data transfer, r, over a particular network is directly proportional to the bandwidth, b, and inversely proportional to the square of the number of networked computers, n.

 Quantity A Quantity B The resulting rate of data transfer if thebandwidth is quadrupled and the number ofnetworked computers is more than tripled $$\frac{4}{9}*r$$

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.

Column A can be written as $$\frac{4b}{9^+ n^2}$$, where $$\frac{b}{n^2} = r$$. Then, we have the same quantity in the two columns but for the denominator, which in column A, is $$n^2$$ multiplied by a number there is greater than 9 (since we are more than tripling), even if it was 9.0001, column B would be greater.
