Yu learn that for every 1,000 meters you rise in the atmosphere, the temperature drops by 6 degrees C. You have the idea that if you know the temperature at the base of a mountain and its height, you can figure out the temperature at the top of the mountain.

What is your question?

Looking to check the mathematical formula for this:
You learn that for every 1,000 meters you rise in the atmosphere, the temperature drops by 6 degress C. You have the idea that if you know the temperature at the base of a mountain and its height, you can figure out the temperature at the top of the mountain. 
If you're checking the formula, where is the formula you want us to check?
