2X4X20

Areas 8:40:80

since 160 broken down into its base is 5x25. this meant that since the ratios of B and C both contained a factor of 5, the shared side had to be a multiple of 5*2x. the rest had to be 2x where the sum of the 3 unknown powers had to sum to 5. This takes you to a very limited number of possibilities which are easy enough to just calculate.
