Quantity B: 30

Quantity B is greater.

Quantity A is greater.

The two quantities are equal.

The relationship cannot be determined from the information given.

**Correct answer:**

The relationship cannot be determined from the information given.

Explanation:

A triangle with a fixed perimeter does *not* have to have a fixed area. For example, a triangle with sides 3, 4, and 5 has a perimeter of 12 and an area of 6. A triangle with sides 4, 4, and 4 also has a perimeter of 12 but not an area of 6. Thus the answer cannot be determined.
