    Question At a rate much higher than...

    I see that "at a rate much higher" is used, although "at a much higher rate" is more common. Are both equally correct? For example, consider:

    "Component A occurs at a rate much higher than Component B."
    versus
    "Component A occurs at a much higher rate than Component B."

    Thanks,
    Nyggus
