Triangle RST is formed by the intersections of the line x = 12 − 2y   with the two axes of the coordinate plane.

Quantity A
Quantity B
The measure of angle RST
30°


Quantity A is greater.
Quantity B is greater.
The two quantities are equal.
The relationship cannot be determined from the information given.

We have two cases..
I.. angle is RST
Sides are
x-intercpet...x=12-2*0=12 and
y-intercept...0=12-2y or y=6
II.
If angle is 30 and y is 6 ..
y:x:H = 1:√3:2 so x is 6√3

Now this is <12 so 30 is more than RST

B>A

Pardon me for being naïve , but I didn't get the explanation. Can some please explain the logic behind the ratio equation ?

It is not a equation but a relation among variable and value.

Yes, it is correct...
\(6\sqrt{3}<6\sqrt{4}................6\sqrt{3}<6*2................6\sqrt{3}<12\)

ohhh! I was confused with the word 'this is', I thought something else in relation to angle.

I think I am clear now.
If angle=30 y=6 x=6[/square_root]3[square_root]
as x=12 that is x>12 angle must be less than 30 to commiserate with the other contents of the right triangle.
Thanks for your reply
