Equation help?

From midnight to 6:00 am, the temperature rose 8°C. At 6:00 am, the temperature was –20°C. What was the temperature at midnight.

I know it's -20-8 = -28 C temp at 12am, but how do I write it an equation?

  1. let Tm = temperature at midnight.
    and T6 = temperature at 6 a.m.
    -------------------------
    midnight =====> 6 A.M.
    Tm.....+8.....-20
    Tm + 8 = T6
    Substitute and solve.
    Tm + 8 = -20
    Tm = -20-8
    Tm = -28 C.

  5. Hello!

    We know that from midnight to 6am the temperature went up 8° and at 6am it was -21°

    To find what it was at midnight we have to work backwards

    Since it went up we have to subtract 8 from -21

    -21 - 8 = -29

    The answer is -29°C

    Hope this helps!
