Looking to change **Fahrenheit to Celsius** or **Celsius to Fahrenheit**? Use our simple Celsius to Fahrenheit Temperature Converter, our temperature conversion charts, or calculate C to F or F to C yourself using the conversion formulas.

### About Fahrenheit and Celsius

The **Fahrenheit** temperature scale is named for German physicist Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit and is the measurement of temperature commonly used by the United States (and its associated territories) and by several nations in the Caribbean. On the Fahrenheit scale, water freezes at 32°F and boils at 212°F (at sea level).

The **Celsius** temperature scale—originally called *centigrade* and later renamed for Swedish astronomer Anders Celsius—is used almost everywhere else in the world. On the Celsius scale, water freezes at 0°C and boils at 100°C (at sea level).

## O Canada!

I spent four years in Montréal, where the weather forecast is always in Celsius; and I found that the easiest way to translate to the more familiar Fahrenheit was NOT to do the precise calculations in my head, or keep whipping out a device, but just to learn the 10s:

-20C = -4F

-10C = 14F

0C = 32F

10C = 50F

20C = 68F

30C = 86F

40C = 104F

That gets you in the right ballpark immediately, and I never found it important to distinguish between, say, 63 and 65 degrees F - especially because other factors, like wind speed and humidity, will make a much larger difference in how hot or cold you actually feel. That range - a mere seven numbers to commit to memory - is really all you need; anything below -20C is "too damn cold", and anything above 40C is "too damn hot".

## EASIEST way to convert Celsius to Fahrenheit

The Quickest way I've found converting ℃ to ℉ without doing fractions or decimals is to round off to the nearest 10th (i.e.10℃,20℃,30℃.....) just remember 0℃ is 32℉ and there is 18℉ difference between every 10℃ and 9℉ between every 5℃. If you need a more accurate reading just add or subtract 1.8. Examples:

10℃=50℉ 15℃=59℉ 11℃=51.8℉ 12℃=53.6℉.....

20℃=68℉ 25℃=77℉ 21℃=69.8℉ 22℃=71.6℉.....

30℃=86℉ 35℃=95℉ 31℃=87.8℉ .......

40℃=104℉ 45℃=113℉ .....

50℃=122℉ 55℃=131℉......

60℃=140℉ 65℃=149℉.....

70℃=158℉ 75℃=167℉.....

80℃=176℉ 85℃=185℉.....

90℃=194℉ 95℃=203℉....

100℃=212℉ 105℃=221℉

## temperature conversion

Here's a much simpler method for those not keen on algebraic equations. For a good approximate:

To convert centigrade to Fahrenheit: simply double the degrees in C, and add 30 .

for example 20deg C is app equal to 40 plus 30= 70 def F

To convert Fahrenheit to Centigrade: simply subtract (minus, or take away) 30 from degrees in F, and half it

for example: 70 deg F i.e 70-30 = 40, divide 40 by 2 ( or half that amount) = 20 deg C

## math

how to solve

each measure of temperature

## math

There are three popular temperature scales used in math and science. You will often find yourself having to convert units between these scales. Using examples, we will learn how to perform these conversions, and also relate temperatures expressed in Kelvins, degrees Celsius and degrees Fahrenheit.

## Easy Way to Convert from Celsius to Fahrenheit:

Instead of using F=(9/5)C+32; it is easier if you don't have a calculator to use (2)C+32-C/5.

Estimates are easy if you round to the nearest 5.

Example:

20C = 2(20)+32-20/5=40+32-4=68F

The benefit of using this formula is that it is easier to use in your head and the answer is exact; So it works in a calculator too!

## Yo

So what is the formla for izt then

## math

it is not "izt" it is usually "it" but the truth is I don't know...

## comments

Best site......keep on giving us shortcuts

## My reference notes from what I learned here

Convert Celsius To Fahrenheit

20°c

1. Multiply # By 1.8

2. 20x1.8=36

3. Add (32)

4. 36+32=68

Convert Fahrenheit To Celsius

68°f

1. Subtract (32) From #

2. 68-32=36

3. Multiply by .5556 (or 5/9)

4. 36x.5556=20

4.1. Or 56 Instead Of .5556

4.2. 36x56=2016

4.3. Remove 16

Using Method 5 Divided By 9

1. Multiply By 5

2. 36x5=180

3. Divide By 9

4. Turn 9 To 10

5. 180/10

6. Half 180 To 90 And 10 To 5

7. Half 90 To 40 And 5 To 2

8. Half 40 to 20 And 2 To 1

9. 20/1=20

7. 40 is easier to half then 45

Keep going until you can't half 10 anymore or don't half 2

My notes to help remember this. Used to be good at math suck at it now

## Compliment!

This was very helpful! Thanks so much!

## 82•F - 32 = 50 (now) 50*.556

82•F - 32 = 50 (now)

50*.556 = 27.8•C (exact)

## Unless you need the EXACT

Unless you need the EXACT number, you can do a quick conversion in your head:

70F - 32 = 38 divided by 2 = 19, then add 1 or 2(remember, this is close enough, not exact)= 21C. The exact conversion would be 21.1.

Another example is 40F - 32 = 8 divided by 2 = 4C. For a lower F temperature to start with, you don't have to add much. In this case, the exact conversion is 4.4.

## why is it so many formula

why is it so many formula method to convert in the different version?

## F into C Subtract 32,

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 start spelling correctly, too #itsspeltgood

## Easiest way: Google it. Type

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.

## Temp

99.5 f is how mutch celsius

## 37.503

## Yo ppl! Conversion of C to

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

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

## Formula is not always correct

If you use this formula for simply 100C (Boiling which should equal in the end 212F) it works out 100Cx2=200, 200-2=198, 198+32=230F, so it works out incorrectly in this situation. the formula is not always correct so it should not be used as a solid formula. It also is incorrect in other examples that I worked. Wish it worked because it's simple but not.

## This Formula is correct

This formula does work for 100C and above. Mathematically, the formula works, and is simpler when written out algebraically.

i.e. - 100Cx2 = 200, 200-(20) = 180, 180+32 = 212F.

For a completely accurate formula... C*2 = A, A-(A/10) = B, B + 32 = F

i.e.

199Cx2 = 398, 398-(39.8)= 358.2 + 32 = 390.2F

6511Cx2 = 13022, 13022-(1302.2)= 11719.8, 11719.8+32= 11751.8

etc...

A nice little poem to remember for Celsius...

Zero is freezing.

10 is not.

20 is warm.

and 30 is hot!

## Regarding poem

If 20 is warm and 30 is hot, please spend sometime in India or Arab countries. :)
