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 |

34 degrees C = ____ F | 93.2 degrees F Tf = [(9/5)*Tc]+32 = [(9/5)*34]+32=61.2+32=93.2 |
