Adding Integers - finding temperature
From the book: "The high temperature for London, England is 155 degrees greater than the low temperature for Barrow, Alaska. Find the high temperature for London."

The low temperature for Barrow, Alaska is -56 degrees Fahrenheit according to the book. So, if I am writing this correctly, the answer is:

-56 + 155 = 99 degrees Fahrenheit.

Am I right?

Yes, you are correct.
"greater than" means "plus" or add...
