# A certain freezing process requires that room temperature be lowered from 40°C at the rate of 5°C every hour. What will be the room temperature 10 hours after the process begins?

**Solution:**

The present temperature of room = 40°C

Decrease in temperature after every hour = 5°C

Temperature of room after 10 hours

Decrease in temperature can be exressed as - 5°C

= 40°C + 10 × (-5°C)

= 40°C + - 50°C

= -10°C

Thus, the room temperature after 10 hours is -10°C, after the process begins.
