the boiling point of water 212 degree f. this is 180 degree more than its freezing point. define the variable. then write and solve an equation to find the frezzing point of water. show your work.
the variable would be:
d could be the variable.
f + 180 = 212 degree

f+180 -180 = 212 + -180
f+0 = 32
f= 32
check :
32 + 180 = 212
is this right?
