Yesterday morning at 8 a.m. the temperature was -14˚F. At noon it was 10 degrees warmer. The temperature increase between noon and and 4 p.m. was twice the temperature increase between 8 a.m. and noon. What was the temperature at 4 p.m?

Yesterday morning at 8 a.m. the temperature was -14˚F. At noon it was 10 degrees warmer

So at noon it was -14˚F + 10˚F = -4˚F

The temperature increase between noon and and 4 p.m. was twice the temperature increase between 8 a.m. and noon

So the temperature increase between noon and and 4 p.m is 10 so $$2 \times 10=20$$

Finally -4˚F + 20˚F = 16˚F   The temperature at 4 p.m!

Hope it helps!
