Answer:

The temperature is #"100.4 °F"#.

Explanation:

The formula is

#"F" = 9/5"C + 32"#

Hence,

#"F" =9/5×38.0 + 32 = 100.4#

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

#"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 #"100.4 °F"#.
