[2.08] The formula for degrees Celsius is: C = 9 over 5 (F − 32), where F stands for degrees Fahrenheit.
Part 1: Solve the formula for F. Show all steps.
Part 2: Determine how many degrees Fahrenheit 4 degrees Celsius is.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Now our first step would be to isolate our F

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Ok that first line should say: So first we multiply both sides by 9/5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1All I did was isolate the F. Its a basic tool which is needed quite often in algebra

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Now Part B all its asking for you is to find out what 4 degrees Celsius is in Faranheight. Now which equation would you use?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Ok the equation we just figured out

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1We 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\( \large F=\frac{36}{5} +32 =39.2\)
