A nurse has to record her temperatures in Celsius but her thermometer reads Fahrenheit. A patient's temperature is 100.7° F. What is the temperature in °C

**Reiny**, Thursday, September 11, 2008 at 9:53amC = 5/9(F-32)

so

C = 5/9(100.7-32)

= 38.2º

(This is a strange question.

No nurse in a modern medical situation would not have a thermometer that measures in Celsius)
