1. ### At midnight in Winnipeg, the temperature was −23°C. During the next 24 hours, the temperature rose 1

At midnight in Winnipeg, the temperature was −23°C. During the next 24 hours, the temperature rose 12°C, then dropped 8°C. What was the final temperature? We start with −23°C Temperatures rising 12°C mean we add: -23 + 12 = -11 Temperatures dropping 8°C mean we subtract: -11 - 8 = -19°C
2. ### At midnight, the temperature was -15 degrees Fahrenheit. By the next morning, the temperature had go

At midnight, the temperature was -15 degrees Fahrenheit. By the next morning, the temperature had gone up to 20 degrees. What was the temperature then? The student meant to say gone up 20 degrees. We start with -15. We add 20 -15 + 20 = 5
3. ### The temperature in Chicago was five (5) degrees Celsius in the morning and is expected to drop by as

The temperature in Chicago was five (5) degrees Celsius in the morning and is expected to drop by as much as 12 degrees during the day. What is the lowest temperature in Chicago for the day? We start with 5 celsius A drop in temperature means we subtract 5 - 12 = -7 or 7 degrees below zero
4. ### Steve woke up and it was -12 Fahrenheit outside the weatherman said it was supposed to warm up to 20

Steve woke up and it was -12 Fahrenheit outside the weatherman said it was supposed to warm up to 20 degrees. how many degrees will the temperature increase We start with a temperature of -12F Warming up means we add degrees to the original temperature. -12 + 20 = +8F
5. ### Storm Center 7 was tracking a cold front approaching Cedarburg. Before it rolled in, the temperature

Storm Center 7 was tracking a cold front approaching Cedarburg. Before it rolled in, the temperature was – 7°F. Then, the temperature decreased by 9°F. What was the temperature after the cold front rolled in? Using signed integers, we start with 7 below or -7 -7 The temperature decreased by 9...
6. ### A patient’s temperature was 103°. The temperature then fell by 4° and later rose by 2°. What was the

A patient’s temperature was 103°. The temperature then fell by 4° and later rose by 2°. What was the patient’s final temperature Start with 103 Fell by 4 means we subtract 4: 103 - 4 = 99 Rose by 2 means we add 2L 99 + 2 = 101
7. ### If the temperature during the day is 6° and the temperature drops 15° after sunset, what is the temp

If the temperature during the day is 6° and the temperature drops 15° after sunset, what is the temperature at night? A drop in temperature means we subtract, so we have: 6 - 15 = -9 or 9 below zero
8. ### 8 degrees below zero

8 degrees below zero Below zero is written as a negative: -8
9. ### Convert 82°F to °C.

Convert 82°F to °C. Using our temperature calculator, we get: 27.78C
10. ### Normal body temperature is 98.6 ̊ F. Write an inequality that describes the temperature

Normal body temperature is 98.6 ̊ F. Write an inequality that describes the temperature, T, of people with above normal temperatures. Above means greater than, so we set up the inequality: T > 98.6 ̊
11. ### The temp

The temperature of a solution was -23C. After adding a substance to the solution, the temperature after adding the substance to the solution was 133C. What is the difference between the temperature of the solution before and after adding the substance Using our temperature difference...
12. ### The temperature dropped 2 every hours for 6 hours. What was the total number of degrees the temperat

The temperature dropped 2 every hours for 6 hours. What was the total number of degrees the temperature changed in the 6 hours 2 degrees drop per hour * 6 hours = 12 degree drop
13. ### A pot of soup, currently 66°C above room temperature, is left out to cool. If that temperature diffe

A pot of soup, currently 66°C above room temperature, is left out to cool. If that temperature difference decreases by 10% per minute, then what will the difference be in 17 minutes? We set up the temperature function T(m), where m is the number of minutes of cooling. With 10% = 0.1, we have...
14. ### 7.5 degrees C to -5.21 degrees C. Kayla and Jason were discussing the changes in temperature. Kayla

7.5 degrees C to -5.21 degrees C. Kayla and Jason were discussing the changes in temperature. Kayla said, "Wow, I can't believe the temperature fell 12.71 degrees C." Jason said, "What are you talking about? The temperature only fell 2.29 degrees C." Who is correct Kayla is correct. The...
15. ### At 4am the outside temperature was -28 By 4pm it rose 38° What was the temperature at 4pm

At 4am the outside temperature was -28 By 4pm it rose 38° What was the temperature at 4pm -28 + 38 = 10 degrees (above zero)
16. ### The temperature was 7℉ below zero. The temperature drops by 6℉. What is the temperature now

The temperature was 7℉ below zero. The temperature drops by 6℉. What is the temperature now Below zero means negative. A drop means we subtract, so we have: 7 below zero = -7 Drops by 6 = -6 -7 - 6 = -13
17. ### At night, the average temperature on the surface of Saturn is -150 C. During the day, the temperatur

At night, the average temperature on the surface of Saturn is -150 C. During the day, the temperature rises 27 C. What is the average temperature on the planet's surface during the day? Rising temperature means we add, so we have: -150+ 27 = -123C
18. ### The temperature is 68. What is the temperature in degrees Celsius

The temperature is 68. What is the temperature in degrees Celsius We type 68 degrees Fahrenheit into our search engine and we get: 20 Celsius
19. ### A Fahrenheit thermometer shows that the temperature is 15 degrees below zero. Enter the integer that

A Fahrenheit thermometer shows that the temperature is 15 degrees below zero. Enter the integer that represents the temperature in degrees Fahrenheit. Below zero means negative in Fahrenheit, so we have: -15
