Observe this number line and write the temperature of the place marked on it.

What is the temperature difference between the hottest and the coldest place among the above?

What is the temperature difference between Lahulspiti and Srinagar?

Can we say temperature of Srinagar and Shimla taken together is less than the temperature at Shimla? Is it also less than the temperature at Srinagar?
Following figure shows operations with negative integers:
Solution:
The above scale shows temperature on a scale. The longer marks on the scale are marked at difference of each small mark is at difference of .

Temperature and places are given in following table
