Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Solve for \(C\): \[133 = \dfrac{9}{5} C + 32\] What I did, I used the given Fahrenheit temperature of 133, and substituted its value for the variable \(F\).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[133 = \dfrac{9}{5} C + 32\] \[133  32 = \dfrac{9}{5} C\] \[\cdots\] See where I am going, by isolating the like terms?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0They are not like terms, so you cannot. Here is an example: \[44 = 3C + 4\] \[\Rightarrow 44  4 = 3C\] \[\Rightarrow 40 = 3C\] \[\Rightarrow \dfrac{40}{3} = \dfrac{3C}{3}\] \[\Rightarrow 13.3333... = C\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes, so \(133  32 = 101\). \[\Rightarrow 101 = \dfrac{9}{5} C\] \[\Rightarrow \dfrac{101}{1.8} = \dfrac{1.8C}{1.8}\] To understand where I got \(1.8\), I converted the fraction to a decimal. \(\dfrac{9}{5} = 1.8\) All you have to do is simplify now.
