To convert a temperature from Fahrenheit to Celsius, you can use the formula C =5(F −32),whereC is the temperature in degrees Celsius and F is the temperature in degrees Fahrenheit. How would I use formula to work out the Celsius equivalent of −10◦F.
Many thanks

  1. You have the formula wrong
    C = (5/9)(F-32)
    check
    when F = 32, C = 0 freezing point- right
    when F = 212, C=100 boiling point - right
    so
    put in -10 for F
    C = (5/9)(-42)
    I think you can do that.
