    Answer:

    80°F

    Step-by-step explanation:

    For this question, we will need to use a Rate of Change in determining the final temperature.

    It is firstly given that the ground temperature (when the altitude 0), has a temperature of 60°F.

    To solve for the amount the temperature increases in total, you will need to do the following to find the value:

    2,000÷ 100 = 20

    20 is the amount of times the temperature will rise as the altitude goes to 2,000 feet. To solve for the actual RAISE in temperature, all you will need to do is:

    20×1= 20°F.

    Simply add 60°F+ 20°F to get 80°F as your final answer.
