• im confused with the -5 and +2 does the +2 mean it goes to -11 or -7 and does the five mean you add -5 to get to -14 or -4.
• The plus two does mean the temperature goes up by two. The only reason this problem is confusing is that it gives you the temperature at the end of the changes, so you have to go backwards. That is why the signs of the +2 and -5 are reversed.
• Please give more questions like these as such questions keep on appearing in SATs all over the globe.
