# Puzzle #7: Thrown for a Loupe

Five magnifying glasses have been laid out on a table. Let's call them A, B, C, D, and E, with A on the left, B next to it, and so on. The lenses have different magnifications, these being 2x, 4x, 8x, 16x and 32x magnification.

Using the hints below, can you order them, from strongest to weakest magnification?

• D is four times stronger than E

• The weakest magnifying glass is not C or E

• C has 8x magnification

• A has weaker magnification than E

• B has stronger magnification than D

• This is my first time making this sort of puzzle, so sorry if the clues are too vague or too easy. – Xavier Stanton Sep 2 '18 at 4:05
• I liked this puzzle. I think I figured it out... but @JonMarkPerry got it before I did, so he deserves the tick. Either way, I found the puzzle quite fun! DVL3 $\color{darkorange}{\bigstar}$ :D – Mr Pie Sep 3 '18 at 21:00
• I'm downvoting because 2 of the clues are unnecessary – isaacg Sep 4 '18 at 3:33
