The value should be between the sum of the two sides and their difference. So in between 6 and 19. Only 12 fits in this category. Hence option B

\(6\sqrt[]{2} = 6*1.4 = 8.4\)
\(6 (\sqrt[]{3}-1) = 6*(1.7-1) = 6*0.7 = 4.2\)

so the range is between 12.6 and 4.2

how come 6 and 19?

by extending RT to form the right angle triangle TZS,

ZSR is a 45:45:90 triangle with side ratios of \(1:1:\sqrt{2}\)
so SZ = 6

and SZT is a 30:60:90 triangle with side ratios of \(1:\sqrt{3}:2\)
so ST = 12

My bad. But we can eliminate 6 as the side opposite to the largest angle is the longest.
