${160}^{\text{o""F}}$ is approximately ${71}^{\text{o""C}}$.

#### Explanation:

The formula to convert the Fahrenheit temperature to the Celsius temperature is:

("F"-32)xx5/9 = "C"

$\left(160 - 32\right) \times \frac{5}{9} = {71}^{\text{o""C}}$

If you don't like working with fractions, you can use the formula in the following way:

(("F"-32))/1.8="C"

$\frac{\left(160 - 32\right)}{1.8} = {71}^{\text{o""C}}$
