    Best way to do multiple choice is to work out answers and choose. Post the values of your answers, and not the letters, please.

    So, how would I find out what the temperature in Fargo is? I am a bit confused on how to work this problem out, now :/

    Assuming the question asks "6 times colder..." means "6 times the temperature of...", then we multiply the temperature of Detroit (-4) by 6. From the answer, you choose the correct answer. Do not forget to read the hint above regarding the sign of a product (of multiplication).

    So, (-4)*6 is -24, rite?

    So, would –24°F be my final answer, or are there more steps to this problem?

    Yes, the last step which \(you\) have to do is to translate the answer to a letter and tell the computer your answer!
