$- \setminus \text{63.58°F}$

#### Explanation:

Temperature in Celsius and Fahrenheit are related as

$\frac{\text{C"/5 = "F – 32}}{9}$

On rearranging above equation

$\frac{\text{F" = "9C}}{5} + 32$

$\frac{\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{F" = "9 × (–53.1)}}}{5} + 32$

$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{F" = -63.58\ "degrees}}$
