    Hello,

    Not sure what the stray ''4'' is at the bottom there. Assuming it is irrelevant though. Heres your answer:

    From the formula

    Temperature = (number of chirps (80) - 40) => 40

    then;

    Temperature = 40 + 50
    => 90 (F)

    90 is your answer,

    hope this helps you both.

    the four was part of the fraction I couldn't make. The four belongs under the
    part that was underlined.

    ok well in that case just continue as before:

    We had,

    Temperature = 40 +50

    make it:

    Temperature = (40/4) +50

    => 10 + 50

    => 60 (F)
