On average, the temperature falls about 5.4 F for every 1,000 ft of additional altitude. If the temperature is 42 F on the ground estimate the temperature at 5,000 ft

    well, how much is 5*5.4?
    Subtract that from 42.

  • Math -

    I estimate 42 - 28 = 14

    42 - (5.4 * 5) = ?

    Is the answer 15

  • Math -

    Yes.
