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

14387100 / (14387100^2 - (14387100+5)(143870100-5))

14387100 / (14387100^2 - (14387100^2 - 25))?

14387100 / 25

first number is 5 so C.

Took me a little longer than 2mins

Got C but took 10 secs. here it is let 14387100 be a then 14387105 will be (a+5) and 14381095 will be (a-5) so by substituting we will get a/a^2 -{ (a+5)*(a-5)} = a/25 = 14387100/25 = answer C
