Factors and multiples

The temperature dropped $$2^{\circ}F$$ every hour for 6 hours. What was the total number of degrees the temperature changed in the 6 hours? Explain how you determined your answer.

Temperature dropped $$2^{\circ}F$$ ( every 1 hour)
$$\displaystyle{6}{h}{o}{u}{r}{s}×{2}°{F}{d}{r}{o}\frac{{p}}{{1}}{h}{o}{u}{r}={12}°{F}{d}{r}{o}{p}$$
There is a drop in $$12^{\circ}F$$
