Given:

The temperature has dropped to 15 degrees celsius in the last 30 days.

To do:

We have to find the temperature drop in the next 10 days if the rate of temperature drop remains the same.

Solution:

The temperature drop in the last 30 days $ = 15^oc$ 

We know that,

The temperature drop for a day can be obtained by dividing the given temperature by the given days.

The temperature drop in 1 day $= \frac{15^oc}{30}$

$=(\frac{1}{2})^oc$

Therefore,

The temperature drop in the next ten days $=(\frac{1}{2})^oc\times10$

$=5^oc$

The temperature drop in the next ten days at the same rate of drop in temperature will be $5^oc$.
