and the -2 on Saturday. She remembered that Thursday’s
temperature was 0 and checked to see how far Saturday’s temperature

I have a question... There is not a 5 degree differnce between 12 degrees and -7 degrees. So, wouldn't you write it 12 - (-7) = 19 degress? I am working on the same problem and trying to figure it out. I am now more confused then ever. Please no offence to Ms. Sue. I am just wondering. :)
