# If the temperature is 65°F outside, what is the temperature in degrees Celsius?

May 28, 2018

$\text{18.33°C}$

#### Explanation:

Temperature in Celsius ($\text{C}$) and Fahrenheit ($\text{F}$) are related as

$\textcolor{b l u e}{\frac{\text{C"/5 = "F – 32}}{9}}$

$\frac{\text{C" = 5 × "F – 32}}{9}$

"C" = 5 × (65 - 32)/9

$\text{C" = 5 × 33/9 = 55/3 = "18.33 degrees}$
