**Reiny**, Sunday, January 17, 2010 at 2:33pmhow about letting the 3 lengths of the first cube be a, b, and c

then

ab = 288

ac = 96

bc = 48

from that you could do stuff like

ab/(ac) = 288/96

b/c = 3

b = 3c

using other variations, and subbing back, I found

a = 24

b = 12

c = 4 (the side areas check out)

so the volume of the first is .....

I am sure you can finish it.
