This is $0$ ""^@C.

#### Explanation:

There are standard formulae for converting $\text{Fahrenheit}$ to $\text{Celsius}$, and vice versa: i.e. stand on your head, think of a number between 1 and 10, and subtract 32........or something of the sort. You can look these up on the web. The $\text{Fahrenheit scale}$ SPECIFIES the melting point of water as $32$ ""^@F, and the boiling point of water as $212$ ""^@F. These are the $\text{Fahrenheit}$ values we tend to remember.

${\circ}_{C} / 5 = \frac{F - 32}{9}$

Simplify

$\circ F = \frac{{\circ}_{C} \times 9}{5} + 32$

$\circ C = \frac{F - 32}{9} \times 5$

Plug in the variables

$\circ C = \frac{{32}^{\circ} F - 32}{9} \times 5$

$\circ C = \frac{0}{9} \times 5$
$\circ C = 0 \times 5$
$\circ C = 0$
