A man desired to get into his work building, however he had forgotten his code.
However, he did recollect five pieces of information
* Fifth number + Third number = 14
* The fourth number is one more than the second number.
* The first number is one less than twice the second number.

1st = 7, 2nd = 4, 3rd = 6, 4th = 5, 5th = 8

Let's call them A, B, C, D, E.
A = 2*B-1
B = B
C = 10-B
D = B + 1
E = 14 - C = 4 + B
Sum A+B+C+D+E = 30 = 4B+14
B = 16/4 = 4
