    ok. So apply the same logic in the other problem. if It is 65 F inside my house and 45 F outside my house, how much hotter is my house compared to outside?

    you answered 20 when I asked you the question: if It is 65 F inside my house and 45 F outside my house, how much hotter is my house compared to outside? How did you get 20. What did you do to get 20?
