# Temperature Conversion

PrintEmail

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

### F into C Subtract 32, reply report

#### By sunil kumar on December 14

F into C
Subtract 32, multiplyng by 5, and Divided by 9

Ex-
50 F = C
50-32=18
18*5=90
90/9=10 C

gud to understand but update the information day to day

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 reply report

#### By TJ23

Yo ppl!

Conversion of C to F.
Take the value of C, multiply it by 2.
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 reply report

#### 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

### Copied from wikitravel.org: A reply report

Copied from wikitravel.org:
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 reply report

#### 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 reply report

#### 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!
