Q. Naomi has a formula that allows her to convert Clesius temperatures to Farenheit temperatures. She needs a formula for converting Fahrenheit temperatures to Celsius tempertures. What advice can you give her?
I am thinking that I just reverse the preocess of the first conversion to get the second conversion, is that right?
Write conversion formula as an algebraic equation for the Fahrenheit temperature, F.
F = (9/5) C + 32
Then do an algebraic conversion for C in terms of F.
(9/5) C = (F 32)
C = ??
I assume that is what you mean by "reversing the process".
Yes and thank you!
i don't understand that is 9

5 c + 32
