A weather station on the top of a mountain reports that the temperature is currently 0°C and has been falling at a constant rate of 3°C per hour. What was the temperature:
1 hour ago?
3 hours ago?
Half an hour ago?


  1. Answer:
    For one hour ago, it would be 3 C, 3 hours ago, it would be 9 C, and half an hour ago, it would be 1.5 C.
    Step-by-step explanation: It’s quite straightforward. Since the temperature is dropping, and you want to find the temp. of earlier times, just add 3C to every hour (1.5 for a half) it was ago, to what the temperature currently is now. (0 C).
