    oh, okay. since the guy defined the freezing point of water to be 32F, and the boiling point of water to be 212F, (212-32)F=(100-0)C 180F=100C 5F=9C so, since there should be equal increase of volume of the thermometer liquid(the rise in mercury/alcohol level is the same), 5 degrees increase of Fahrenheit scale will equal 9 degrees increase of Celcius 5F=9C 1C=5/9 F -40C=-40(5/9) F=22.22F
