(F32)*5/9 = C
K = 273.15 + C

Would the equation be like this?
(13432)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.
