The temperature 4

The temperature was very cold, then it doubled, then it dropped 10 degrees, and then it increased by 40 degrees. The temperature is now 16 degrees. What was the starting temperature?

Correct result:

t =  -7 °C

Solution:


t•2-10+40=16

2t = -14

t = -7

Our simple equation calculator calculates it.
