THE TEMPERATURE ON A SUMMER DAY IS // DEGREES FAHRENHEIT.the formula to convert the temperature to degrees Celsius is C = 5/9(F-32) what is the corresponding temperature in degrees Celsius?

• College Algerbra - ,

C = 5/9(F-32)

C = (5/9) (11 - 32)

C = 5/9 (-21)

C = -105/9

C = 11.67

THE TEMPERATURE ON A SUMMER DAY IS 77 DEGREES FAHRENHEIT.the formula to convert the temperature to degrees Celsius is C = 5/9(F-32) what is the corresponding temperature in degrees Celsius?

Sorry Ms. Sue I cut of the top of the screenshot, it is 77 degrees Fahrenheit.

Use the same method I used, except substitute 77 for 11.

So I did what you said but I am not sure how you got to C= 5/9(-21)
to C=105/9
So on mine C=(5/9)(77-32)
I got C=5/9(-45)
I am unsure how you did the math to come to your C=-105/9 answer and then the C=11.67 answer. Please show me those last steps if you do not mind, Thanks for all the help.

C = 5/9 (-21) I subtracted 32 from 11 (the degrees F).

C = -105/9 I multiplied 5/9 times -21

C = -11.67 I divided the numerator by the denominator

When the temperature is 77 degrees F, it is 25 degrees C.

Work with the formula until you get 25 degrees C.

The temperature on a summer day is 77 degrees fahreheit. The formula to convert temperature to degrees Celsuis is C =5/9(F-32). What is the corresponding in degrees Celsius?
