The change is an increase of 15 Kelvin.

#### Explanation:

Calculating changes in Celsius and Kelvin will reveal the same magnitude. If the change is +15 degrees Celsius, the change is +15 Kelvin (note that it's not *degrees* Kelvin, just simply Kelvin).

You can use the conversion, which is 273.15 Kelvin = zero degrees Celsius. Since it's a relative scale,
