## Introductory Algebra for College Students (7th Edition)

a) The Record Low ($^\circ F$) information is plotted on the number line below. b) On the number line, a number on the right is greater than the numbers on the left. Hence, the order (from coldest to warmest) of the given temperatures ($^\circ F$), $-2,$ $\text{ }$ $-17,$ $\text{ }$ $12,$ $\text{ }$ $-16,$ $\text{ and }$ $-25,$ is \begin{array}{l}\require{cancel} -25^\circ F \text{ (Rhode Island),} -17^\circ F \text{ (Georgia),} -16^\circ F \text{ (Louisiana),} -2^\circ F \text{ (Florida), } 12^\circ F \text{ (Hawaii)} .\end{array}
