Suppose that x, y, z \(\$x \le y \le z\$\)  are positive integers satisfying , and such that the product of all three numbers is twice their sum. What is the sum of all possible values of z?

i already came up with one pair that supports \(x \le y \le z\), 2,2,4. 4 being z, and the solution isn't 4

I found the following 3 solutions:

x          y          z

1          3         8

1          4         5

2         2         4

So, z =8 + 5 + 4 = 17
