this problem varies one posed by Suman Saraf (found here) involving areas

this task considers cuboid volumes (and factors)
a cuboid is cut into 8 cuboids (with 3 cuts, parallel to the original faces)
their volumes (apart from one) are as shown
dimensions are integers
choose a solution that looks about right...
