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?

One more (minor) point:

The correct name for the temperature scale is Celsius which officially replaced the old "Centigrade" name in 1948. This was reaffirmed in 1960, due to the inherent uncertainth of determining the exact temperature of melting ice needed for the definition of Centigrade.
