formula to convert temp in F to C Tc = (5/9)*(Tf-32)
formula to covernt temp in C to F Tf = [(9/5)*Tc]+32
32 degrees F = ___ C 0 degrees C Tc = (5/9)*(Tf-32)= (5/9) * (32-32) = 5/9 * 0 = 0
85 degrees F = ___ C 29.4 degrees C Tc = (5/9)*(Tf-32) = (5/9) * (85-32) = (5/9)*53 = 29.4
102 degrees F = ___ C 38.8 degrees C Tc = (5/9)*(Tf-32) = (5/9) * (102-32) = (5/9)*70 = 38.8
15 degrees C = ___ F 59 degrees F Tf = [(9/5)*Tc]+32 = [(9/5)*15] +32 = 27-32 = 59
65 degrees C = ___ F 149 degrees F Tf = [(9/5)*Tc]+32 = [(9/5)*65] + 32 = 117+32=149
