A group of meteorologists are studying temperatures around the world. The chart shows how much temperature change (either getting hotter or colder) they measured in each city over a certain amount of time:

**City****Temperature Change****Time**London -10.8 °C 4 hours New York +13.56 °C 5 hours Tokyo -11.709 °C 3 hours Dubai +14.92 °C 5 hours - Calculate the rate of temperature change (in °C / hour; by dividing the temperature change by the time).
- Which city had the fastest rate of temperature change and was it getting colder or hotter?
- On the same day, another meteorologist in Barcelona observes that the rate of temperature change during a period of 6 hours was -1.654 °C / hour. How much did the temperature change during that time?
