## anonymous 5 years ago 86 degrees F, C=5/9 (F-32), express the relationship between farenheit temperature, F and Celsius temperature C.

1. anonymous

correct

2. anonymous

Use the formula to convert the given farenheit temperature to its equivalent temperature on the celsius scale.

3. anonymous

replace F by 86 to get $C=\frac{5}{9}(86-32)$ $C=\frac{5}{9}(54)$ $C=5\times 6$ $C=30$

4. anonymous

How did you get 5 x 6?

54/9=6

6. myininaya

you see the 54 on top and the 9 on bottom that means divide when you see that little fraction bar
