On April 2, 2003, the high temperature in the United Stateswas recorded as 94°F in Wink, Texas. The low temperature for the day was 23°F, recorded in both Deadhorse and Northway, Alaska (at 4°F, Presque Isle, Maine, recorded the lowest temperature in the contiguous states). What was the temperature range in
the United States on that day?

• math -

The "range" of anything is the difference (distance, of a sort) between the two. Normally, you'd just subtract, but since one of the numbers you are referring to, I think, is a negative (-4 degrees, right?), your problems will look like this:

94 - (-4) = range in contiguous US
94 - 23 = range in total US

What happens when you have two negatives in a subtraction problem?
