As it is rectangular solid areas of faces A, B, and C = l*b,b*h,l*h

Volume of the solid is l*b*h

So l*b*b*h*l*h = \(l^2*b^2*h^2\)

Volume of the solid =\sqrt{\(l^2*b^2*h^2\)}

=\sqrt{12*15*20}=60

=>

Let \(a\) and \(b\) be the edges of face \(A\), and let \(b\) and \(c\) be the edges of face \(B\). Then the edges of face \(C\) are \(a\) and \(c\). Moreover, the volume of the solid is \(abc\). Now,
\(ab = 12\), \(bc = 15\) and \(ca = 20\).
Multiplying these together yields
\((ab)(bc)(ca) = a^2b^2c^2 = (abc)^2 = 12*15*20 = 3600 = 60^2\)
So \(abc = 60\).
Therefore, the answer is C.

Answer: C
