Problem 1428. Find the optimal shape to bring the maximum product by a given perimeter

Find the optimal shape (with N sides) to bring the maximum product of the sides length, by a given perimeter. Example: Assuming perimeter equals to 10 (p=10) then it's known Nopt=3 (triangle - 3 sides). let mark L1,L2,L3 the triangle sides length (L1+L2+L3=10), thus the product is L1*L2*L3 and we want it to be maximum according to Nopt we found.
