Given :
Area $\Delta=12cm^2$
Now $\Delta=\large\frac{1}{2}$$ab\sin C$
$\qquad\;\;\;=\large\frac{1}{2}$$a.k\sin B\sin C$
$\qquad\;\;\;=\large\frac{1}{2}$$a.\large\frac{a}{\sin A}$$\sin B\sin C$
$\large\frac{a}{\sin A}=\frac{b}{\sin B}=\frac{c}{\sin C}$$=k$
$\Delta=\large\frac{1}{2}\frac{a^2\sin B\sin C}{\sin A}$
$12=\large\frac{1}{2}\frac{36\sin B\sin C}{\sin A}$
$\large\frac{2}{3}=\frac{2\sin B\sin C}{2\sin A}$
$\large\frac{2}{3}=\frac{\cos(B-C)-\cos(B+C)}{2\sin A}$
$\large\frac{2}{3}=\frac{\cos (60^{\large\circ})-\cos(\pi-A)}{2\sin A}$
$\large\frac{2}{3}=\frac{1+2\cos A}{4\sin A}$
$4\sin A=3+6\cos A$
$8\sin A-6\cos A=3$
Hence (c) is the correct answer.
