    The question requires you to make F the subject of the equation. In other words, play around with the equation to have it like F=......

    wait C 5/9 = (F − 32) so c= 9/5(F − 32)

    1. C 5/9 = (F − 32) so c= 9/5(F − 32) c=9F/5 - 288/5 c=9F/5 -57.6 c+57.6=9F/5 (c+57.6)5/9=F

    \[C=(F-32)/1.8\] \[1.8C = F-32\] \[F=1.8C+32\] Plug in C and solve for F

    1) multiply thru by 1.8 to get rid of it on the right side of the equation 2) Add 32 to both sides to get F by itself 3) If you do the same thing to both sides of an equation the equation essentially doesn't change, it is just manipulated.
