Default Convert celsius to fahrenheit

thouhgt this might be helpful to anybody who doesn't know how to convert celsius to anyone who doesn't know how to do this


for F to C use this formula

Start with the degrees in Fahrenheit (F), then,
Subtract 32, then,
Multiply the number by 5 then,
Divide the number by 9 and that is your answer.

For example, I'll convert 212 degrees F to Celsius.
212 - 32 = 180
180 x 5 = 900
900 / 9 = 100
There's my answer, 100 degrees C.



For C to F use the same formula above but in reverse so


Start with the degrees in Celsius (C), then,

Multiply the number by 9,
Divide by 5,
Then add 32 and that is your answer.

For example, 100c to f

100 x 9 = 900
900 / 5 = 180
180 + 32 = 212f

....thanks for ruining my fun.....


or here's another way...take the temp F and subtract 32...then divide by 1.8


Example:

212 - 32 = 180
180 / 1.8 - 100c

I just did the calculation and you're right.

(-40 x 9 / 5) + 32 = -40.

I just push the button on my Jeep's thermometer from U.S. to Metric and it will show me what it is. Or I don't really care what the Celsius equivalent is.
