## Comment on

Wind Chill Factor - Question II## I am sorry this question

## That's understandable.

That's understandable. However, when it comes to temperature, the higher/more/greater/bigger the number, the hotter the temperature.

## can you please explain , if

## If the temperature is AT MOST

If the temperature is AT MOST -5 degrees, then the temperature must be LESS THAN OR EQUAL TO -5 degrees.

So for example the temperature COULD be -10 or -5, or -22 or -31 or....

Does that help?

## I have a question regarding

## Great question.

Great question.

We're examining ranges, because the question tells us that "the temperature is AT MOST -5 degrees Fahrenheit"

In other words, we're told that the temperature could be anywhere in the range of temperatures from -5 all the way down to super low low low temperatures. This is why I highlighted those various temperature in yellow.

Also, when we examine the scenario when the wind is 5mph, we're looking for an air temperature that would result in a perceived temperature of -29 degrees.

Unfortunately, there is no air temperature (when combined with a wind speed of 5 mph) that yields a perceived temperature of exactly -29 degrees.

We know that an air temperature of -15 degrees yields a perceived temperature of -28 degrees, and we know that an air temperature of -20 degrees yields a perceived temperature of -34 degrees.

Since -29 degrees is between -28 degrees and -34 degrees, this means the air temperature must be between -15 and -20

Does that help?

Cheers,

Brent
