**Reiny**, Sunday, November 3, 2013 at 8:01pmlook at a table we can set up

distance --- temp ......... by formula

0...................... 20 , T = 20 - 10(0) = 20

100 m or .1 km.. 19 , T = 20 - 10(.1) = 19

200 m or .2 km..18 , T = 20 - 10(.2) = 18

...

...

5000 m or 5 km.. -30 , T = 20 - 10(5) = -30
