    When you see this problem just simply subtract

    -45 - 71 key term "change" means subtract

    \[-46 - -71 = 26 F\]

    If that 71 is negative your answer is 26

    Don't let temperature intimidate the question; if you see change means subtract, increase means add and decrease is subtract

    Are you sure it's 26F? :) @misssunshinexxoxo

    I'm asking are you certain it's 26 F?

    Temperature is not exactly like normal math...if I said it was -50F but it was -12F earlier, what is temperature difference?

    (-71°F) - (-45°F) = (-71+45) °F = should be negative as it is getting colder

    Haha, well since it's asking what is the change in temperature from -45°F to - 71°F, notice that it's going from -41 F -> -71 F so you have to subtract -71 F from - 45 F and that will be the difference between the temperature.

    "change" symbolizes subtraction

    change in \(x\) is \[x_\text{final} - x_\text{initial} \] if you get the order wrong, you'll get the answer wrong

    Yes! Change in temperature therefore is represented as such \[\Delta T = T_f - T_i\]
