another brain teaser from The Times

Last week's Top Ten consisted of the following performers:

1 Akka
2 Bay Leaf
3 Gooseberry
4 Demi Sour
5 Angle Smith
6 Fatherhood
7 Gee Bee
8 How
9 Sit
10 Revolter

This week the same ten were in the charts, but all their placings were different. Five had gone up and five had gone down. Akka had the biggest single drop of all, but Fatherhood went up. When I looked at the products of last week's and this week's placings, I found that

(a) Gee Bee's product was three times Gooseberry's
(b) Sit's was three times Demi Sour's
(c) Angle Smith's was even
(d) the total of the products was 272

What was this week's order?

GT-I want to try this one,but I'm not sure of the definition of "product" in this context...help!
BTW I think "Revolter" would make a great name for a band.

hey there human, in this context the product is the resulting answer multiplying one number (last week's position) with another number (this week's position), good luck mate
