Solution(By Apex Team)

Sum of temperature on 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th days
= (58 × 4)
= 232 degrees
Sum of temperature on 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th days
= (60 × 4)
= 240 degrees
Subtracting (i) from (ii), we get :
Temperature on 5th day – Temperature on 1st day = 8 degrees
Let the temperature on 1st and 5th days be 7x and 8x degrees respectively.
Then,
⇒ 8x – 7x = 8
⇒ x = 8
∴ Temperature on the 5th day
= 8x
= 8 × 8
= 64 degrees
