# Does this word problem make sense?

On Saturday it was 27 degrees below zero. The temperature was 38 degrees on Sunday. How much did the temperature rise? -21+38=?

Update:

@Tracy

Well , 38 - (-27) =65 becuase

^^^the two (-) signs turn to a posotive so your adding.

The answer would be 65 degrees because you are finding out how much it rised from -27 degrees to get to 38 degrees

well wouldnt it be 65 degrees ... it went from - 27 to 38 which would just be 27 + 38 = 65
