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
[B]Kayla[/B] is correct. The temperature change TC is:
TC = High Temp - Low Temp
TC = 7.5 - (-5.21)
TC = 7.5 + 5.21 ([I]Since a minus negative is positive)[/I]
TC = 12.71

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:
[B]-15[/B]

a fever is generally considered to be a body temperature greater than 100 F. You friend has a temperature of 37 C. Does you friend have a fever?
37 Celsius equals 98.6 F. Since this is less than 100F, your friend does not have a fever.

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 = [B]101[/B]

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:
T(m) = 66 * (1 - 0.10)^m
The problem asks for T(17) [U]and[/U] the difference temperature:
T(17) = 66 * 0.9^17
T(17) = 66 * 0.16677181699
T(17) = [B]11.01C[/B]
[B][/B]
[U]Calculate the difference in temperature[/U]
Difference = Starting Temperature - Ending Temperature
Difference = 66 - 11.01
Difference = 66 - 11.01 = [B]54.99 ~ 55[/B]

A student posed a null hypothesis that during the month of September, the mean daily temperature of Boston was the same as the mean daily temperature of New York. His alternative hypothesis was that mean temperatures in these two cities were different. He found the P value of his null hypothesis was 0.56. Thus, he could conclude:
a. In September, Boston was colder than New York
b. In September, Boston was warmer than New York
c. He may reject the null hypothesis
d. He failed to reject the null hypothesis
[B]d. He failed to reject the null hypothesis[/B]
[I]Higher p value tells us we cannot reject the null hypothesis[/I]

A thermometer has a range of 1.5 degrees of the temperature, what is the maximum and minimum at 87.4 degrees
Range = Max - Min
Divide this by 2 to get the lesser half and larger half:
Half-Range = 1.5/2
Half-Range = 0.75
[U]Our Maximum temperature is:[/U]
Max Temp = Current Temp + Half-Range
Max Temp = 87.4 + 0.75
Max Temp = [B]88.15

At 7:00 AM, the temperature started dropping 1 degree Celsius per hour until it reached 30 degrees C

At 7:00 AM, the temperature started dropping 1 degree Celsius per hour until it reached 30 degrees Celsius at 12:00 PM. What was the temperature at 7:00 AM?
7:00 AM to 12:00 PM is 5 hours.
1 degree per hour * 5 hours = 5 degrees.
If it's 30 degrees at 12 pm, then it was 30 + 5 = 35 degrees Celsius at 7:00 AM, since it dropped each hour.

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 = [B]-19°C[/B]

heat loss of a glass window varies jointly as the window's area and the difference between the outside and the inside temperature. a window 6 feet wide by 3 feet long loses 1,320 btu per hour when the temperature outside is 22 degree colder than the temperature inside.
Find the heat loss through a glass window that is 3 feet wide by 5 feet long when the temperature outside is 9 degree cooler than the temperature inside.
Find k of the equation:
6*3*22*k = 1320

Terry recorded the temperature every hour from 8 AM to 1 PM. The temperature at 8 AM was 19?. The temperature dropped 4? every hour. What was the temperature at 1 PM? Group of answer choices 1 degree
Set up our temperature function T(h) where h is the number of hours since 8 AM:
T(h) = 19 - 4h <-- We subtract 4h since each hour, the temperature drops 4 degrees
The questions asks for the temperature at 1PM. We need to figure out how many hours pass since 8 AM:
8 AM to 12 PM is 4 hours
12 PM to 1 PM is 1 hour
Total time is 5 hours
So we want T(5):
T(5) = 19 - 4(5)
T(5) = 19 - 20
T(5) = [B]-1?[/B]
