Algebra

In the metric system there are two official temperature scales: degree Celsius and kelvin. The kelvin temperature scale is obtained by shifting the Celsius scale so of any heat whatsoever. An equation about the relationship between the two scales follows: kelvin~ degree Celsius+ 273 degrees.
A: Write an equation to find degree Celsius in terms of degrees kelvin.
B: If the boiling point of water in Celsius is 100 degrees, what is the comparable temperature in kelvin?
C: -40 degrees is the point on a thermometer at which both degree Celsius and degree Fahrenheit are the same. What is this temperature in kelvin?
