Question

If 8'C represents 8'C above freezing point, then what will 16'C below freezing point represent?

  1. 16`C
  2. -16`C
  3. 0
  4. None of the above

Hint:

We are given that the temperature above freezing point is 8°C. We have to tell the temperature 16°C below the freezing point.

The correct answer is: -16'C


    The freezing point is 0°C.
    The temperature above the 0°C are considered postive.
    The temperature below the freezing point are considered to be negative.
    So, 16°C below freezing point is -16°C.

    For such questions, we should check if the temperature is below or above freezing point. Warm temperature are postive. Cold temperatures are negative.
