The numbers are 2,3,4
where 2 is the first number answer Sep 17, 2015

let the three numbers be x,y,z
then,x+y+z=x*y*z - 15
& (x-2)+y+z=(x-2)*y*z + 7
solving these we will get y*z=12
possiblities are {1,12} , {2,6} , {3,4}
taking these {3,4} is satisfying the conditions giving x=2
so x*y*z=2*12=24 answer Sep 26, 2015
