Volume = l*b*h

st 1: 2 adjacent face has area of 10, 12

so the face can be 10,12,1 or 2, 5,6 ..each case the answer is different
hence in sufficicent

st 2: opposite faces have an area of 30... clearly insufficient

1 and 2 together

l^2b^2c^2 = 10*12*30
lbh = sqrt(10*12*30)
= 60
hence sufficient

[list=]=>[/list]consider a rectangle box with sides $$x,y,z$$
rephrase the question-- what is$$xyz ?$$

statement 1 :
suppose $$xy=10,xz=12$$ can we find out $$xyz ?$$ no
combining $$xy$$ and $$xz$$ === $$xy^2z=120$$
so 1 insuff

statement 2:
suppose $$xy/yz/xz=30$$
still cannot find xyz
2 insuff

combine 1 & 2
$$xy=10,xz=12 & yz=30$$
so $$(xyz)^2=3600$$ =:> $$xyz=60$$

i hope it helps

"Stolen" OG question:
Quote:
What is the volume of a certain rectangular solid?

(1) Two adjacent faces of the solid have areas 15 and 24, respectively.
(2) Each of two opposite faces of the solid has area 40.

Hope it helps.
