The temperature at noon was –12°C. In the next 9 hours, the temperature dropped 8°C. What is the temperature at 9 p.m.?
The next nine hours after twelve?
to get to 9 pm from noon is nine hours
then if its the next nine hours it gives you the answer
all you have to do is -12-8
Yes Escobar17 is correct!!
it drops 8 which means minus
Drop means minus not plus and he shouldn't give away the answer anyways
the answer is -12-8
thanks for your help
