Answer:

Temperature in celsius is #-17.22^oC#

Explanation:

If #F# is the temperature in Fahrenheit and #C# is temperature in Celsius then

#(F-32)/180#= #(C-0)/100#

or #(F-32)/9= C/5#

Hence if #F=1#,

#C/5=(1-32)/9=-31/9# and

#C=((-31)xx5)/9=-155/9=-17.22#

In case you want to know how many degrees Celsius temperature will rise or fall for every rise or fall by #1^@# Fahrenheit,

we observe that relation #(F-32)/9= C/5# is

#C=5/9F-32/9# or #F=9/5C+32#

So for every rise or fall by #1^@# Fahrenheit, it is #5/9=0.555^@# Celsius and for every rise or fall by #1^@# Celsius, it is #9/5=1.8^@# Fahrenheit.
