I would start by finding the prime factors of 1375911 (there are five) then forming all groups of 3 factors.

Hi HallsofIvy!

Thanks for your reply. But since this is a challenge question, I hope you know our expectation here is to receive a full solution, no more, no less. (Happy)

No solution because

RHS is odd so all factors are odd so each term in the LHS is odd. there are 3 terms on the LHS and so their sum has to be odd.

but sum is 12A + 8B + 16C which is even so impossible
