I am trying to solve the following systems of equations for x, y and z:

{
xyz=a
x+y+z=w
}

x<y<z (i.e., x is not equal to y or z & y is not equal to z)
'a' and 'w' are given quanitites.

How can I solve the system?

Learn, understand, then make your homework yourself. Or ask your teacher
for assistance.

Yours,
VB.

Check out any reference on "linear optimization".

Elementary symmetrical polynominals. D'oh, that was the lesson about, you
should know it and know how to use it.

What does this have to do with computer security?
