If Honolulu can be 81 degrees, then Juneau is 2(81) - 115, according to the way your problem reads.

Because Juneau is AT LEAST 2 times Honolulu's temp, which is 162 degrees, minus the 115 degree colder (thus we subtract).

So then Juneau is at least 47 degrees f.

Make sure to include the "at least"...
