A wire is cut into three equal parts. The resulting segments are then cut into 4,6, and 8 equal parts respectively. If each of the resulting segments has an integer length, what is the minimum length of the wire.

The question tells us that a given wire is equally cut into three parts and each of those three parts are further cut into 4,6 and 8 parts. We are required to find the original length of the wire if each of those parts is a +ve integer.
