14387100 / (14387100^2 - (14387105 * 14387095))

=>14387100/(14387100^2 - (14387100+5)(14387100-5)))
=>14387100/(14387100^2 - (14387100^2 - 5^2))
=>14387100/25
= 575484

Great job venksune, OA is C. Too bad not many people tried it. It is really a good problem. An alternative approach would be to look at 14387100 as "a"
You then have a / [a^2 - (a+5)(a-5)]
You will avoid writing all those numbers
