The equation below shows the relationship between the temperature in degrees Celsius, C, and degrees Fahrenheit, F.
F = 9/5 C + 32
Which of the following formulas correctly solves for C?
C = 5F  32/9
C = 5F/9  32
C = 9/5 (F  32)
C = 5/9 (F  32)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1When we solve for a variable we need to isolate that variable first. Isolate C Step one: do the opposite of addition which is subtraction. so we subtract 32 from both sides. dw:1441763132933:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1We divide both sides by 9/5 and we see that now 9/5 cancels out on one side

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Its easier in a way because I would look back and forth on it so I would figure it out how you did it because right now im confused like heck

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.11 \[F = \frac{ 9 }{ 5 }C + 32 \] 2\[F32 = \frac{ 9 }{ 5 }C\] 3 \[\frac{ 5 }{ 9 }(F32) = C \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Step one I subtracted 32 from both sides, and i got F  32 = 9/5c then I divided both sides by (9/5) when you divide a fraction you flip it the denominator becomes the numerator; so it becomes (5/9) and got (5/9)(F32) = C

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But how do you take away the 9/5 from C

greatlife44

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@CIAsmart you have 9/5*C right? to take it away you do the opposite of multiplication which is division. so i divided both sides by (9/5) so on one side \[\frac{ 9/5 }{ 9/5 } C = C\] (9/5)/(9/5) = 1 then I did the same thing on the other side (F32) \[\frac{ f32 }{ \frac{ 9 }{ 5 } } = (5/9)*(f32)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1it takes some time, though. there are people on this site who are much better than I am. \[\frac{ 1 }{ \frac{ 9 }{ 5 } } = \frac{ 5 }{ 9 }\] it's called the reciprocal it means we just put 1 over that number.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok \[\frac{ 4 }{ 5 }x + 1 = F \] I want you to solve for x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You are correct we must subtract one first BUT do it one step at a time

greatlife44

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so first subtract one from both sides and then show me what you have now

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1okay so you have F1 = 4/5x what must you do now? to isolate x?

greatlife44

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1nice but you're just dividing by 4/5 not 4/5x because we want to isolate x remember? but otherwise great
