Hotter and hotter (Posted on 2010-02-08) Difficulty: 2 of 5
Today is Saturday. For the last 5 days, Monday to Friday, the temperatures were rising, i.e. each day was hotter than the previous one. The product of the 5 values (Centigrade degrees, rounded to the closest integer) is 12. What are the five temperatures?

I could not decide whether the 5 values or the product was to be rounded to the closest integer.  To me it was the product and yet, neither this offering nor those previously needed to be rounded.

As such I derived:
Monday       0.5
Tuesday       1
Wednesday      2
Thursday 3
Friday 4
