Answer:

127 degrees Celsius

Explanation:

Use this formula:

#T_(@C) = T_K - 273#

where #T_(@C)# is the temperature in Celsius and #T_K# is the temperature in Kelvin.

Plug in known values:

#T_(@C) = 400 - 273#
#T_(@C) = 127#

The midday temperature at the surface of the moon is 127 degrees Celsius.
