    Temperature

    "can you tell me what the temperture has been at noon for the past 5 days?" John asked the meteorologist. "I dont exactly recall," replied the meteorologist, "but i do remember that the temperature was different each day, and the product of the tempertures is 12." Assuming that the temperatures are expressed to the nearest degree, what were the 5 temperatures?

    Vague.

    My interpretation.

    "...was different each day..."
    1*2*3*1*2 = 12
    1*2*1*3*2 = 12
    2*1*2*1*3 = 12
    1*6*1*2*1 = 12
    etc...

    In any case, it's too cold in there.
