You work in a materials testing lab and your boss tells you to increase the temperature of a sample by 32.1 Celsius. The only thermometer you can find at your workbench reads in degrees Fahrenheit. If the initial temperature of the sample is 69.6 Fahrenheit, what is its temperature in degrees Fahrenheit when the desired temperature increase has been achieved?

OR 69.2+ 9/5 (32.1) ?
