Changing Celsius to FahrenheitDate: 9/9/96 at 20:28:19 From: Anonymous Subject: Celsius to Fahrenheit How do you change Celsius to Fahrenheit? Date: 9/9/96 at 21:47:2 From: Doctor Sarah Subject: Re: Celsius to Fahrenheit Hi there - To convert Celsius to Fahrenheit, multiply by 9/5 and add 32: C = 5/9(F-32) or C = F - 32/1.8 Example: Convert 40 degrees Celsius to Fahrenheit: 40 x 9 = 360 360 / 5 = 72 72 + 32 = 104 A weather forecast of 40 degrees Celsius or 104 degrees Fahrenheit is too hot for comfort! To convert Fahrenheit to Celsius, subtract 32 and multiply by 5/9: F = 9/5C + 32 or F = (C x 1.8) + 32 Example: Convert 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit to Celsius: 98.6 - 32 = 66.6 66.6 x 5 = 333 333/9 = 37 "Normal" human body temperature is 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit, 37 degrees Celsius. -Doctor Sarah, The Math Forum Check out our web site! http://mathforum.org/dr.math/ |
