Frigid Forecast

Question

Andy checked his Fahrenheit thermometer at 10:00 each morning during his winter vacation. He was disappointed because he could not go outside very often, as the weather was extremely cold.

He wrote his notes for each day on scrap paper. The notes are not in order of the days of the week.

  • Tuesday was the warmest day of the week, but still was only 10 degrees below freezing. That was 15°F warmer than the day before.
  • On Wednesday the temperature was 5°F colder than on Monday.
  • Thursday was 1°F colder than Friday.
  • Friday's temperature was 6°F below Wednesday's.
  • It was 5°F warmer on Saturday than on Friday.

What was the temperature in degrees Fahrenheit each day?
