help please this question is driving my crazy.

Suppose there is a 2-degree drop in a temperature for every thousand feet that an

airplanes climbs into sky. If the temperature on the ground is 65 degrees, what would be

the temperature when the plane reaches an altitude of 23,000 ft?

23000/1000 = 23

23*2 = 46 degree-drop

therefore,

65-46 = 19 degrees

so there,, :)

after diving 90m below the sea level, a diver rises at a rate of 4 meters per minute for 8 min. Where is the diver in relation to the surface

distance = rate*time

distance = 4*8 = 32 meters

therefore,

90-32 = 58 meters BELOW sea level

so there,, :)
