Arterial bifurcation

Hello, I have an issue with a fluid mechanic problem, here is the question:
An arterial bifurcation is created between 1 mother branch of area A1 and 2 identical branch of area A2. With K*A1 = 2*A2, and K is a constant. What are K limits to have P2>P1. Poiseuille's law applies.

I first try to use bernoulli and the continuity equation, but I end up with a velocity in my condition for K.

Then i tried to use Poiseuille, but I don't have any informations about the length L.
I am a bit stuck, how can i proceed?
Thank you,
Jeje
