    75 - 3 every half hour so minus 6 every hour,

    between noon and 4pm, there are 4 hours

    4*6 = 24

    75 - 24 = 51

    Noon is 12 pm.

    Temperature drops by 3° every 30 minutes.

    There are 240 minutes in 4 hours.

    So, in 4 hours or 240 minutes, the temperature dropped by 24°.

    By 4 pm, the temperature is 51°F.
