To convert a Fahrenheit temperature into Celsius

To convert a Fahrenheit temperature into Celsius

In the formulas below, / means to divide, * means to multiply, - means subtract, + means to add and = is equal. Tc = temperature in degrees Celsius, Tf = temperature in degrees Fahrenheit
 
To convert a Fahrenheit temperature into Celsius:
 
Tc = (5/9)*(Tf-32)
 
 
For example, to convert a Fahrenheit temperature of 98.6 degrees into degrees Celsius first subtract 32 from the Fahrenheit temperature to get 66.6. Then you multiply 66.6 by five-ninths to get 37 degrees Celsius.
 
 
To convert a Celsius temperature into degrees Fahrenheit:
 
Tf = ((9/5)*Tc)+32
 
 
For example, to convert a Celsius temperature of 100 degrees into degrees Fahrenheit, first multiply the Celsius temperature reading by nine-fifths to get 180. Then add 32 to 180 and get 212 degrees Fahrenheit.
 
 
The Celsius temperature scale is still sometimes referred to as the "centigrade" scale. Centigrade means "consisting of or divided into 100 degrees
