Here are the formulas for temperature conversion:

Fahrenheit to Celsius:

To convert temperatures in degrees Fahrenheit to Celsius, subtract 32 and multiply by .5556 (or 5/9).

  • Example: (50°F - 32) x .5556 = 10°C

Celsius to Fahrenheit:

To convert temperatures in degrees Celsius to Fahrenheit, multiply by 1.8 (or 9/5) and add 32.

  • Example: 30°C x 1.8 + 32 = 86°F

Easiest way: Google it. Type "convert x degrees Fahrenheit into Celsius" That goes for many measurements. For example, kg-pounds, m-inch and etc. It works both ways.

Yo ppl! Conversion of C to

By TJ23

Yo ppl!

Conversion of C to F.
Take the value of C, multiply it by 2.
then subtract the first digit of the answer from the answer, then simply add 32.
Example: 10C to F ?
10*2=20
20-2=18
18+32=50F

Go vice versa too.
Have fun!

This will not work is above

By GERALD P.

This will not work is above 99C or below -99 C
C to F
C+40 *9/5-40=F
F+40*5/9-40=C
will work at any temp

A nice little poem to remember for Celsius...
Zero is freezing.
10 is not.
20 is warm.
and 30 is hot!

It's even easier.... If you

By Chris 12387

It's even easier....
If you notice, the Celcius and Fahrenheit scales are equal at -40 degrees.
The conversion formula (to go either way) would be
temp = (old temp + 40) X - 40

where X is 5/9 to convert to Celcius
and X is 9/5 to convert to Fahrenheit

One formula does the trick.
To Convert 0 degrees Celcius to Fahrenheit:
temp = (0 + 40) 9/5 + 40
temp = 40 * 9/5 + 40
temp = 72 - 40
temp = 32 degrees Fahrenheit

Thank you so much! My math

By Brianna Mc

Thank you so much! My math book is so complicated. Instead of just simply saying what you said, It said

F + 9/5C + 32

9/5C + 32 + F

9/5C + 32 - 32 = F -32

9/5C = F - 32

5/9 x 9/5C = 5/9(F-32)

C = 5/9(F - 32)

SO COMPLICATED!
