That's a perfectly valid solution. In fact, it's exactly the same as the first solution in the video :-)

## Hi, is it possible to assume

## Your strategy is based on a

Your strategy is based on a strategy use for equations.

That is, you are starting with the assumption that the two quantities are equal, but the goal of QC question is to determine the relationship between the quantities.

## => 5/5+5/k => 5/5K+5/k=> 5k

=> plug k=1, 2, and 10,100... in k/k+1 will be less than 1.

=> B is solution

Is this correct approach Brent?

## The only problem with that

The only problem with that approach is that, even though you tested three values of k, we still can't be 100% certain that Quantity B will ALWAYS be greater.
