Factorize 108 = 1 * 2^2 * 3^3

t > u > v > w --> w = 1; v = 2; u = 3; t = 2 * 3^2 = 18

t - w = 18 - 1 = 17

List the prime factors of 108: 2*2*3*3*3

To maximize the difference between the greatest number and the smallest number, make \(t\) as big as possible by making \(w\), \(v\) and \(u\) as small as possible -- remembering t > u > v > w

Let \(w\) = 1
Let \(v\) = 2
Let \(u\) = 3

From prime factor list, the remaining numbers are 2, 3, and 3
Let \(t\) = (2 * 3 * 3) = 18
(t - w) = (18 - 1) = 17
