Answer:

#310^"o""C"#

#-73^"o""C"#

#227^"o""C"#

Explanation:

We're given #3# temperatures in Kelvin (#"K"#), and asked to convert them to degrees Celsius (#""^"o""C"#).

There is a general formula for converting from Kelvin to Celsius (and hence Celsius back to Kelvin). The Celsius temperature, from a given Kelvin temperature, is

#""^"o""C" = "K" - 273#

Let's use this formula to convert the three given Kelvin temperatures to Celsius:

#""^"o""C" = 583"K" - 273 = color(red)(310^"o""C"#

#""^"o""C" = 200"K" - 273 = color(blue)(-73^"o""C"#

#""^"o""C" = 500"K" - 273 = color(green)(227^"o""C"#
