On Whit Monday, Zak began self-isolating upstairs. At lunchtime Kaz shouted up, “What’s a Geometric Mean?” “It’s the Nth root of the product of N values,” Zak replied.
On TV, Teaseside hospital’s “geovid” admissions for the seven days prior were listed alongside their Geometric Mean. Kaz stated that chronologically the numbers comprised a decreasing set of two-figure values, Friday’s value equalling the Geometric Mean. She added that, curiously, there was a value double the Geometric Mean, but not triple, whereas the Geometric Mean was triple a data value, but not double a data value. She then told Zak just the Geometric Mean.
Zak worked out the unique data set.
Give the seven numbers in chronological order.
