Knowing how to convert between Fahrenheit and Celsius measurements is important. Why? There are many factors I can think of such as.... What if you don't have one handy around? What if the internet is down and no online calculator is available? What if you encounter a problem like this on the CBET exam? (Hint! Hint!) My point is the greatest calculator or microprocessor ever invented is the one sitting between your ears. We must not forget that that are manual ways to do things although it takes longer we should not forget who we are. BiomedGuy 22:00, December 18, 2010 (UTC)
Fahrenheit temperatures into Celsius
- Begin by subtracting 32 from the Fahrenheit number.
- Divide the answer by 9.
- Then multiply that answer by 5.
Here's an example: Change 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit to Celsius: 98.6 minus 32 is 66.6. Then, 66.6 divided by 9 is 7.4. Finally, 7.4 times 5 is 37 degrees Celsius.
Easiest way: (98.6 – 32) / 1.8 = 37 C
Celsius temperatures into Fahrenheit
- Begin by multiplying the Celsius temperature by 9.
- Divide the answer by 5.
- Now add 32.
Here's an example: Change 20 degrees Celsius to Fahrenheit: 20 times 9 is 180. Then 180 divided by 5 is 36. Finally, 36 plus 32 is 68 degrees Fahrenheit.
Easiest way: (37 * 1.8) + 32 = 98.6 F
