A) Quantity A is greater.
B) Quantity B is greater.
C) The two quantities are equal.
D) The relationship cannot be determined from the information given.
Kudo for the right answer and explanation.
Let's TEST some possible scenarios for Quantity A
Case 1:
If the perimeter is 60, then one possible scenario is that the base = 15 and the height = 15
In this case, the area = (15)(15) = 225
Here, Quantity A is greater
Case 2:
Another possible scenario is that the base = 25 and the height = 5 (perimeter still equals 60)
In this case, the area = (25)(5) = 125
Here, Quantity B is greater
Answer: D
Cheers,
Brent
