Answer:

#35^@"C"#

Explanation:

We can convert from Fahrenheit to Celsius using the formula:

#c = 5/9(f-32)#

or from Celsius to Fahrenheit using the formula:

#f = 9/5c + 32#

where #f# represents degrees Fahrenheit and #c# represents degrees Celsius.

In our example #f=95# and we want to find #c#, ...

#c = 5/9(f-32) = 5/9(95-32) = 5/9*63 = 35#
