If it's 35 degrees Celsius, it's about 95 degrees Fahrenheit - I'd say that's definitely summer weather. A year has 52 weeks (plus a few days left over). If you're asking for 35 hundreths in decimal, it looks like this: 0.35 Hope this helps. -Doctor Jodi, The Math Forum Check out our web site! http://mathforum.org/dr.math/
