Hayleymeyer one year ago Barbara is converting 78°F to degrees Celsius. First, she subtracts 32 from 78. What is the next step? multiply 46 by 5/9 multiply 46 by 9/5 add 273 to 46 subtract 273 from 46

1. Astrophysics

$C = \frac{ 5 }{ 9 }(F-32)$

2. anonymous

to convert F to C you first take temp in F subtract by 32 and then multiply be 5/9

3. Astrophysics

The equation is above for celcius, if you want to go the other way as well, you use the following $F = \frac{ 9 }{ 5 } C+32$
