r = 3s = 3 * 10 u = 30 u

s = 5t = 5 * 2u = 10 u

t = 2u.

Question :$$\frac{rst}{u^3}$$ = $$\frac{30u*10u*2u}{u*u*u}$$ = 600.

The best answer is E.

Note: As u is the denominator convert all the items in terms of u.

convert all the right hand side of all equation into variable 'u'
as $$t=2u$$
so $$s=5(2u)=10u$$
$$r=3(10u)=30u$$

so expression is:
$$\frac{rst}{u^3}=\frac{30u*10u*2u}{u^3}$$
$$\frac{600u^3}{u^3}$$

$$600$$

$$r = 3*5(2u) =30u$$

$$s = 5(2u) = 10u$$

$$t = 2u$$

So, $$\frac{rst}{u^3} = \frac{30u*10u*2u}{u^3}= 600$$; Answer must be (E)

Let $$u=1$$, therefore $$t=2$$ & $$s=10$$ & $$r=30$$
