(F-32)*5/9 = C

K = 273.15 + C

Would the equation be like this?

(134-32)x5/9

K=273.15+134

Yes and no.

The first equation is correct; all you need to do is the math. To check yur answer C should be 56.66 which I would round to 56.7.

The second one is K = 273.15 + C. You should substitute C into the equation and not F.
