    Answer:

    -156c

    Step-by-step explanation:

    \frac{1}{4} of krypton melting point is mercury melting point

    \frac{1}{4}(k) = -39

    k = -39(4)

    k = -156c

    The melting point of Krypton is about – 160 oC. It means that numerically the melting point of Krypton is 4 times lower than that of mercury. Now you want to make it something like K(1/4) = – 39 which would be fine.
