Figured it Out!
(100000-1000)=99,000
69,300/99,000
Divide by 11 = 6,300
Dived by 9 = 7,000
Divide by 10,000 =.7

Alternatively:

Top: 693 * 100 = 3*3*7*11*100 = 2^2 * 3^2 * 5^2 * 7 * 11
Bottom: 10(10^4 - 10^2) = 10(10^2 - 10)(10^2 + 10) = 10 * 90 * 110 = 2^3 * 5^3 * 3^2 * 11

When we reduce the resulting fraction, we get 7/10 = 0.7.

\(\frac{69,300}{(10^5 - 10^3)}\) \(= \frac{693 * 10^2}{10^3(10^2 - 1)}\)

\(\frac{693 * 10^2}{10^3(100 - 1)}\) \(= \frac{693 * 10^2}{10^3*99}\)

\(\frac{693 * 10^2*10^{(-3)}}{99}\) \(= \frac{693 * 10^{(2-3)}}{99}\) \(= \frac{693 * 10^{(-1)}}{99}\)

\(7*10^{(-1)} = 0.7\)

Answer (B)...

We need to find the value of expression \(\frac{69,300}{(10^5 - 10^3)}\)

Denominator can be simplified : \((10^5 - 10^3) = 100000-1000 = 99000\)

The expression becomes \(\frac{69,300}{(10^5 - 10^3)}\) = \(\frac{693 * 100}{99 * 1000}\) = \(\frac{7}{10}\) = 0.7(Option B)

= \(\frac{69300}{(100000 - 1000)}\)

= \(\frac{69300}{99000}\)

= \(\frac{693}{990}\)

= \(0.70\)

Thus, answer must be (B) 0.70
