Convert 38degrees F to degrees celsius. If necessary, round your answer to the nearest tenth of a degree. Here are the formulas. C=5/9(F-32) F=9/5 C+32

    the number 17.7 : the 1 is the tens place, 7 is hte ones place, .7 is the TENTHS place. so when it asks for the tenth place, it wants the number up until that place: which owuld be 17.7

    thats not even possible. F is always a bigger number than C. if F is 38, C is gonna be really small....
