Temperatur in Ohio = 41 F : Temp( C) = 5/9 * ( 41 - 32) = 5

Difference = 15 - 5 = 10 = 90/9 : D

(A) $$\frac{45}{9}$$

(B) $$\frac{60}{9}$$

(C) $$\frac{75}{9}$$

(D) $$\frac{90}{9}$$

(E) $$\frac{105}{9}$$

Temperature of Ohio in Degree Celcius is

$$C=\frac{5}{9}(41 - 32)$$

$$C=\frac{5}{9}*9$$

So, $$C = 5$$

Thus, the difference between the Temperature in Ohio and Miami is $$15 - 5 = 10$$ , Answer must be (D)
