# Bashing is for the weak, WE factor

In the following linear system:

$$a(a+2)-4b(b+3)=8, \\ 8(b-2c)(b^2+2bc+4c^2)-48bc(b-2c)=(b+2c)(b^2-2bc+4c^2)+6bc(b+2c), \\ a^4+81c^4=12a^3c-54a^2c^2+108ac^3$$

there are two ordered triples $$(u, v, w)$$ and $$(x, y, z)$$ which satisfy the system. If $$u+v+w+x+y+z$$ can be represented as $$-\frac{p}{q}$$ where p,q are positive co-prime integers, find $$p+q$$.
