# A warm day has a high temperature of 38.0°C. What is this temperature in degrees Fahrenheit?

Feb 25, 2016

The temperature is $\text{100.4 °F}$.

#### Explanation:

The formula is

$\text{F" = 9/5"C + 32}$

Hence,

"F" =9/5×38.0 + 32 = 100.4

The above formula ignores units. Here it is with units.

$\text{F" = 38.0 color(red)(cancel(color(black)("°C"))) × "9 °F"/(5 color(red)(cancel(color(black)("°C")))) + "32 °F" = "68.4 °F + 32 °F" = "100.4 °F}$

The temperature is $\text{100.4 °F}$.
