But your link was helpful. The second response (to Lynn) used the Kelvin scale, got the answer, and then converted it back to -136.58 Celsius.

I know you got the answer out of a book and I should be asking the guy who wrote the book. But only given the information provided I don't see how my answer is wrong. It might not be the only answer since the question was subject to interpretation.

0F = -17.778C do you agree this is true?
2 x -17.778 = -35.556 do you agree twice as cold would mean two times [2x] as cold?
-35.556C = -32.001F do you agree this is true?
