1)** Quantity A Quantity B**

(.9)8 (1.01)4

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

In Quantity A, a fractional value (a value less than 1) is multiplied by itself many times. So its value becomes increasingly smaller. (For example, 1?2 x 1?2 = 1?4; 1?4 x 1?2 = 1?8, and so forth.) In Quantity B, a number greater than 1 is multiplied by itself; its value grows larger. So Column B is greater.
