Q3:

Express the change in temperature from 4 1 F to 2 3 F as an integer.

Q4:

Which is greater, a temperature change from 5 9 to 6 2 or from 2 2 to 5 1 ?

  • Afrom 2 2 to 5 1
  • Bfrom 5 9 to 6 2

Q5:

It is 1 4 C in city A and it is 6 C hotter in city B. What is the temperature in city B?

Q6:

Express the change in temperature from 2 0 F to 3 1 F as an integer.
