i thought it was 5/9?

AriPottaBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
but you wrote 9/5. i'm just making sure

idk :/ it's probably 9/5, nvm

Now our first step would be to isolate our F

So first we divide the 5/9 \(\large C*\frac{9}{5} = \frac{5}{9}*\frac{9}{5} (F32)\) \(\large \frac{9}{5}C=F32\) Then we add 32 to both sides: \(\large \frac{9}{5}C+32=F32+32\) \(\large \frac{9}{5}C+32=F\) And there you go there is your formula for F

ohhh whoops I meant multiply instead of divide

this didnt come from google right?

Ok that first line should say: So first we multiply both sides by 9/5

hahaha Noooooooooo I just did it this second. I taught grade 11 HS math last year lol

All I did was isolate the F. Its a basic tool which is needed quite often in algebra

The way i would suggest you learn how to isolate is by starting off with simpler functions such as y=3x+4 And try to isloate the x.

Now Part B all its asking for you is to find out what 4 degrees Celsius is in Faranheight. Now which equation would you use?
 one year ago

swissgirlBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Ok the equation we just figured out
 one year ago

swissgirlBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
We would like to know what F=Fahrenheit equals when c=4 \(\Large F=\frac{9}{5}C+32\) So we plug in C=4 \(\Large F=\frac{9}{5}(4)+32\) Ok now you solve the rest

\( \large F=\frac{36}{5} +32 =39.2\)
