There has to be a simpler way to do this to avoid these nasty fractions

Don’t need to solve much :

Qty B:

3.5 = 7/2

Qty A:

\frac{2}{7} + \frac{1}{\frac{2}{7}} = \frac{2}{7} +\frac{7}{2} \tag{1}

Now, we need to do another iteration on it

(\frac{2}{7}+\frac{7}{2}) = p

and we have to do : p+\frac{1}{p} Now, p is already greater than what we have for QtyB so, doing p+\frac{1}{p} will only gonna make it even more greater hence, stop right here and choose A
