I had to say to myself "later!" or I would get nothing done today.

]]>I see what you mean about temperature. It's kind of like saying 'I'm three times as short as you'. How can you be twice as short? It makes more sense when you say 'I'm a third as tall'.

I spent a long time playing with many more puzzling ones here:

]]>Quite right about "twice as cold", it really makes no sense for two reasons:

1. Temperature is just an arbitrary scale. To have it make sense, you would need to measure the amount of heat energy. Then you could say "this has twice as much heat".

2. Cold is just the absence of heat, so saying "twice as cold" is like saying "twice as poor".

Having said that, -20°C would still be the "commonly accepted" answer

]]>The question raises an interesting point. How can you calculate how much is twice as cold?

Doing the same thing with °C, °F and K would return different answers. Also, what is twice as cold as 0°? What's the difference between twice as cold and twice as hot?

I've been staring at the middle and the flashing appears to be changing speeds, so I presume that's what's meant to happen.

-4 x 5 = -20°C

So, the coldest day was -20°C. Brr!

]]>yesterday's temprature, -4°C. What was the temprature of the coldest day in record in

Robin Reed's town?

do I have to divid -4÷5= [-4]÷[5]= 4÷5= -0.8

is this right?
