Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You've been to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fahrenheit ? There it says: [°C] = ([°F] − 32) × 5⁄9 [°F] = [°C] × 9⁄5 + 32 What is it, you don't understand?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.00 = 32 ; 100 = 212 these are our coordinates for a line that has a Celsius axis and a Farenheit axis: (0,32) (100,212) whats the slope of the line? slope = (y1y2)/(x1x2) slope = (21232)/(1000) = 180/100 reduce 180/100 = 18/10 = 9/5 So we have the slope of our line equal to: 9/5 We plug this and one of our coordinates into the equation for a line: y = slope(x) + b or F = (9/5)C + 32 Since zero is an easy number to play with, lets choose (x=0,y=32) 32 = (9/5)(0) + b 32 = 0 + b b = 32; now we have the formula for changeing Celsius into Farenheit: F = (9/5)C + 32 We can manipultate this equation around to find its inverse, that is, the conversion of f:F>C. (F  32)(5)  = C (9)
