20. Temperature in Chennai is measured since 12 noon is given by (t2/9) + 4t + 16. Then the difference in temperatures between 4 pm and 9 pm is ___. (I don't remember the question but can only outline it.)

21. Aeroplane - 12oN 26oE - 20oS 30oW - Longitude - 8 hours to reach destination. (I don't remember the question but can only outline it. Ans: 5 hr. 40 min.)
