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?

Many thanks Charlie.  I couldn't understand that.

Just  looking at that now for a moment,  (C)^5 to me says power of 5 as I always thought, but ... in writing (Centigrade degrees)^5 .. he meant  - "(Centigrade degrees)*5" - which is still in in need of explanation but certainly a little "clearer".
