    Well they are both quantities, from my understanding. \(\Rightarrow\)If quantity \(b\) is arbitrary, then quantity \(a\) can be compared to it arbitrarily. Construct a equation, for \(a)\) \(8.85 = 0.25 x+0.85\). \(x =\cdots \) Is \(x\) greater than, \(16\)? When it is, then quantity \(a\) is greater, when it is not then quantity, \(b\) is greater.
