Transitive Property

If x < y and y < z, then x < z


1/Q > 1
Column A Column B
Q2 1

Since 1/Q > 1 and 1 > 0, we know from the transitive property that 1/Q is positive.


Hence, Q is positive. Therefore, we can multiply both sides of 1/Q > 1 by Q without reversing the inequality:


Reducing yields
1 > Q


Multiplying both sides again by Q yields

Q > Q2


Using the transitive property to combine the last two inequalities yields

1 > Q2


The answer is (B).
