# What is formula for converting Farenheight to Celsius?

Oct 21, 2015

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

#### Explanation:

For Fahrenheit to Celsius, I would simply do (°F-32)* (5/9) , so if my temperature in Fahrenheit was 50, then my degrees in Celsius would be $\left(50 - 32\right) \cdot \left(\frac{5}{9}\right)$ which would equal to 10°c.

If you wanted to convert Celsius to Fahrenheit, then use °C * 9/5 + 32 = °F.
