Since the areas of the three faces of the cuboid, are 12,15 and 20,
and each of the faces are rectangles, area is ab,bc and ac

For ab = 12, bc = 15 and ac = 20, the sides have to be a = 3,b = 4, and c = 5.
The volume of the cuboid is a*b*c = 3*4*5 = 60(Option A)

Let the sides of rectangular cuboid be \(= a , b,\) and \(c\)

Given \(3\) faces have areas \(= 12,15,\) and \(20\)

\(a * b = 12\)

\(b * c =15\)

\(a * c = 20\)

Only sides \(3\), \(4\) and \(5\) could have the above gives areas for each faces.

\(a = 3, b = 4 ,\) and \(c = 5\)

Volume of rectangular cuboid \(= length * breadth * height\)

Volume of rectangular cuboid \(= a * b * c = 3 * 4 * 5 = 60\)

Answer (A)...
