It could be that the 3 sides are 4,4 and 3 or it could be that the three sides are 4,3,3 In the first case the perimeter would be 11 and in the second case the perimeter would be 10 option D

Given: The sum of the lengths of two sides of isosceles triangle K is 7. K has a side of length 4. Here are 2 possible triangles that meet this condition: Case a: The triangle has lengths 3, 3, and 4 Case b: The triangle has lengths 3.5, 3.5, and 4

Let's examine each case separately.

Case a: The triangle has lengths 3, 3, and 4 Here, the perimeter = 3 + 3 + 4 = 10 So, we get: Quantity A: 10 Quantity B: 11 Quantity B is greater

Case b: The triangle has lengths 3.5, 3.5, and 4 Here, the perimeter = 3.5 + 3.5 + 4 = 11 So, we get: Quantity A: 11 Quantity B: 11 The two quantities are equal

Answer: D

Is it also possible for this triangle to have lengths of 4, 4, 3?

Yes, that's also possible.
