Key concept to solve this:

Potential Energy Function:  If a force acting on an object is a function of position only, it is said to be a conservative force, and it can be represented by a potential energy function which for a one-dimensional case satisfies the derivative condition

-dU/dx = F(x)

We have given U = 20xy/ z

Now taking the derivative of U w.r.t x,y and z we get,

Fx = -20y/z, Fy = -20x/z, and Fz = 20xy/z2

Now adding all we get the final force, i.e

F = -(20y/z)i-(20x/z)j+(20xy/z2)k.
