Correct Answer - B
`(b)` Number of solutions of the equation `x_(1)x_(2)x_(3)=y` is the same as the number of solutions of equation
where `x_(4)` is dummy variable
Now number of solutions `=` number of ways distinct integers `2`, `3` and `5` can be distributed in four boxes `x_(1)`,`x_(2)`,`x_(3)` and `x_(4)=4^(3)=64`
