Can objects that have different masses/velocities have equal momentum?

  1. Does an object that has a mass of x and velocity of x4 momentum equal to one's that has a mass of x/2 and a velocity of x8?

    For example: Object A has mass of 2 kg and velocity of 6 m/s. Object B has mass 12 kg and velocity 1 m/s.
    So do both have momentum of 12 kg-m/s?
