• 2.
Ordering Temperatures
a)
Put the following temperatures in order from coldest to warmest.
12°F, -13°F, 20°F, 2°F, -25°F, 6°F, -4°F

b)
Put the following temperatures in order from coldest to warmest.
8°C, -21°C, 38°C, -14°C, -6°C, 6°C, 15°C

• 3.
Calculating temperature change
a)
The temperature at night falls by 2°F every hour. If the starting temperature was 10°F, what is the temperature four hours later?

b)
The temperature during the day rises by 4°C every hour. If the starting temperature was 12°C, what is the temperature 2 hours later?

• 4.
Average Temperature
a)
The temperature everyday at 9am was measured for 5 days and the following temperatures were recorded: 25°F, 10°F, 15°F, 25°F, 20°F. What was the average temperature at 9am for these 5 days?

b)
The temperature everyday at noon was measured for 5 days and the following temperatures were recorded: 20°C, 22°C, 18°C, 25°C, , 20°C. What was the average temperature for these 5 days?
