x  = a/3      y   =  b/5       z   =  - c/6

a  + b  +  c   =  2

5 (a/3)(b/5)  -  10(b/5)(-c/6)  - 6(a/3)(-c/6)  = -41

abc / -90 =  6

a +  b  +  c  =  2       ⇒   a + b  =  2 - c       (1)

ab  + bc  +  ac  =  -123    ⇒    ab  + c ( a + b)  =  -123    (2)

abc   =  -540   ⇒   ab  =  -540/c        (3)

Sub  (1)  and (3)  into (2)

-540/ c  + c (2 - c)  =  -123

-540/c   + 2c - c^2  = -123

-540 + 2c^2 - c^3  = -123c

c^3 - 2c^2  - 123c + 540  = 0     re-write as

c^3 -  2c^2  - 63c  -  60c + 540  = 0

c(c^2 - 2c - 63)   -  60c + 540  = 0

c(c -9)(c + 7) -  60 (c - 9) =  0

(c - 9) [ c(c + 7) - 60 ]  = 0

(c - 9) [ c^2 + 7c - 60] =  0

(c - 9) ( c + 12)(c - 5)   =  0

So...possible values of c =   5, 9  and - 12

z  is an integer if  c = -12

And  ab  =  45

And  a + b  =  c  - (- 12)  ⇒  a +  b  =  14

And x is an ineger if a  = 9

And  y is an integer if b  =  5

So the cubic monomial we need is

(t + 12) (t -9) (t - 5)   =

t^3 - 2 t^2 - 123 t + 540
