Simple solution: use the property a^2-b^2 = (a+b) (a-b)
=
(1001+999)(1001-999) / (101+99)(101-99)
=
(2000)(2) / (200)(2)
=
10

ans. A

Another alternative way

(a+b)^2-(a-b)^2=4ab

so the above can be expressed as
(1000+1)^2-(1000-1)^2/(100+1)^2-(100-1)^2
=4*1000/4*100
=10

I have just begun looking at an MBA. I am assuming we cannot use calculators on the exam? Correct? Incorrect?

username309. Forget about calculator. You are not allowed even with your watch or a tissue paper.
