To convert a temperature in degrees Celsius to degrees Fahrenheit, multiply the Celsius temperature by 9/5 and then add 32 degrees. Is a temperature in degrees Celsius proportional to its equivalent temperature in degrees Fahrenheit? Explain your reasoning.

no. If it were proportional, that "add 32" could not be there.
