Katie converts the outside temperature from degrees fahrenheit, f, to degrees celsius, c. She uses the formula below to convert the temperature.
(F-32)5/9=c
if the outside temperature is 50 degrees fahrenheit, what is the outside temperature in degrees celsius

  • math -

    (F-32)5/9=c

    (50 - 32)(5/9) = c
    18 * (5/9) = c
    90/9 = c
    10 = c
