# The temperature dropped 15 degree Celsius in the last 30 days. If the rate of temperature drop remains the same, how many degrees will the temperature drop in the next ten days?

**Solution:**

Let's use the concept of the unitary method.

Temperature drop in 30 days = 15ºC

Temperature drop in 1 day = 15 / 30 = (1 / 2)ºC

Therefore, temperature drop in the next 10 days will be the product of (1 / 2) and 10

= (1 / 2) × 10 = 5ºC

Thus, the temperature drop in the next 10 days will be 5ºC.

## The temperature dropped 15 degree Celsius in the last 30 days. If the rate of temperature drop remains the same, how many degrees will the temperature drop in the next ten days?

**Summary:**

If the temperature dropped 15 degree Celsius in the last 30 days and the rate of temperature drop remains the same, the temperature drop in the next 10 days will be 5ºC.
