## anonymous 4 years ago The formula for converting degrees Fahrenheit (F) to degrees Celsius (C) is C = 5/9 (F – 32). Find C for F = 5°. Okay, I have tried this problem over 3 times and get a different answer each time, I must be doing something wrong. Can you guys help me?

$\frac{5}{9}(5-32)=-15$

5/9(-27)= 5*(-27) / 9 =-15

Remember, if you're using a calculator, you have to do it so the order of operations is not disturbed.
