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.
