    Answer:

    The answer to your question is triangle Q

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Data

    Triangle P

    base = 12 in

    height = 8 in

    Triangle Q

    base = 15 in

    Height = 6.5 in

    Formula

    Area of a triangle = base x height / 2

    Process

    1.- Calculate the area of triangle P

    Area = 12 x 8 / 2

    Area = 96 / 2

    Area = 48 in²

    2.- Calculate the area of triangle Q

    Area = 15 x 6.5 / 2

    Area = 97.5 / 2

    Area = 48.75 in²

    3.- Compare the areas

               Area of triangle P < Area of triangle Q

                                     48 in² < 48.75 in²
