Celsius temperature readings can be converted to Fahrenheit readings using formula F=9/5c+32 What is the fahrenheit temp. that corresponds to each of the following Celsius temperatures -10, 0, 15, 1000?

I will be happy to critique your work on this.

You have the formula, just substitute the value of Celsius for c in your formula and do the arithmetic. Here's an example

We have F = 9/5C + 32

Suppose we're told the Celsius temperature is 12 and we're asked to find the corresponding Fahrenheit temperature. We would substitute 12 for C to get

F = (9/5)*12 + 32 We use 12 for C and evaluate to get

F = 53.6

Now do the same process with the four vaues you've been asked to convert to Fahrenheit.
