The temperature in Houston at 6:00 a.m. was 36 degrees C.  If the temperature drops 3 degrees each hour, what is the temperature in degrees Celsius at 2:00 p.m.?

From 6:00 am to 2:00 pm is 8 hours.

Dropping 3o per hour for 8 hours will result in a trop of 8 x 3o  =  24o.

Since the temperature started at 36oC, the new temperature will be 36o - 24o  =  12oC.
