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)

Can you show step-by-step because I want to know for later

When 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|

We divide both sides by 9/5 and we see that now 9/5 cancels out on one side
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay
greatlife44
  • greatlife44
Tell me what You don't get, read everything I did
anonymous
  • anonymous
How do we subtract 32 from 9/5 ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
That doesn't make sense...
greatlife44
  • greatlife44
I didn't do that
greatlife44
  • greatlife44
i subtracted 32 from both sides, let me show you again
anonymous
  • anonymous
No no its fine ... what's the answer? It would be easier for me to understand
anonymous
  • anonymous
Its 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
greatlife44
  • greatlife44
1 \[F = \frac{ 9 }{ 5 }C + 32 \] 2\[F-32 = \frac{ 9 }{ 5 }C\] 3 \[\frac{ 5 }{ 9 }(F-32) = C \]
anonymous
  • anonymous
Okay?
greatlife44
  • greatlife44
I should have just written it this way lol
greatlife44
  • greatlife44
so above I wrote out all the steps.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Probably its alot easier but why are the answers copied lol
anonymous
  • anonymous
Ooooh
anonymous
  • anonymous
Im look back to back I can't understand 9/5C is just switching back and forth..
greatlife44
  • greatlife44
Step 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)(F-32) = C
anonymous
  • anonymous
I think I understand
anonymous
  • anonymous
But how do you take away the 9/5 from C
greatlife44
  • greatlife44
@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 (F-32) \[\frac{ f-32 }{ \frac{ 9 }{ 5 } } = (5/9)*(f-32)\]
greatlife44
  • greatlife44
Let me know if this is clear
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yes
anonymous
  • anonymous
That last part helped alot thanks sorry to waste your time nut seriously you can explain some way that I like lol so easy to understand
greatlife44
  • greatlife44
Don't worry, at least you understand it better now
anonymous
  • anonymous
when you divided f-32 / 9/5
anonymous
  • anonymous
you just flip it and thats it?
greatlife44
  • greatlife44
Think about if you're dividing the whole thing by (9/5) because if i re write it
anonymous
  • anonymous
I dont want to beg you but can you give me a question like about this with different number so I can do it myself and you can see if I did right?
greatlife44
  • greatlife44
\[f-32 * \frac{ 1 }{ \frac{ 9 }{ 5 } }\]
greatlife44
  • greatlife44
Put (1)/(9/5) in your calculator
anonymous
  • anonymous
Life must be great for you since you understand math so easily ,....
anonymous
  • anonymous
1.8
greatlife44
  • greatlife44
it 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.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yeah yeah sorry its 5/9
anonymous
  • anonymous
I did it wrong the first time then i got my real calculator and it showed 5 over 9
greatlife44
  • greatlife44
you have to put the answers in brackets sometimes because the calculator gives you the wrong answer
greatlife44
  • greatlife44
especially when you divide numbers
anonymous
  • anonymous
Can you give me a problem just like this one so I can solve it and see what my mistakes are or if I really understand it?
greatlife44
  • greatlife44
ok \[\frac{ 4 }{ 5 }x + 1 = F \] I want you to solve for x
greatlife44
  • greatlife44
so you need to make sure that you get x by itself
greatlife44
  • greatlife44
this is somewhat similar to the other question you had before
anonymous
  • anonymous
we subtract 1 from each side?
anonymous
  • anonymous
5 over 4 F - 1= x
greatlife44
  • greatlife44
You are correct we must subtract one first BUT do it one step at a time
greatlife44
  • greatlife44
so first subtract one from both sides and then show me what you have now
anonymous
  • anonymous
F - 1
greatlife44
  • greatlife44
okay so you have F-1 = 4/5x what must you do now? to isolate x?
anonymous
  • anonymous
(F-1)\[\frac{ f-1 }{ \frac{ 4 }{ 5 }X }\]
greatlife44
  • greatlife44
nice but you're just dividing by 4/5 not 4/5x because we want to isolate x remember? but otherwise great

  • anonymous
Yeah I dont know this part lol...
