# What is 120 degrees fahrenheit in celsius?

Apr 3, 2018

48.9

#### Explanation:

to find celsius, take your fahrenheit value, subtract 32, multiply by 5 and then divide that by 9.

$C = \left(F - 32\right) \cdot \frac{5}{9}$

$C = \left(120 - 32\right) \cdot \frac{5}{9}$

$C = 88 \cdot \frac{5}{9}$

$C = \frac{440}{9}$

$C = 48.9$ (rounded)
