Use the formula *C=5/9 (*F-32) to find the Celsius temperature (*C) when the Fahrenheit (*F) is 212 *F.

Replace the variable 'F' with the value 212.

C=5/9(212-32)

C=5/9(180)

C=100

On a side note, 212 degrees F is the boiling point of water which corresponds to 100 degrees Celsius.

C=5/9 (*F-32)

C = 5/9 (212-32)

C = 5/9 * 180

C = 900/9

C = 100
