# What is the temperature, in degrees Celsius, that is equivalent to a temperature of 40°F?

4.44 Degrees Celsius

#### Explanation:

The formula to convert Fahrenheit to Celsius (or Vice Versa) is,

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

Here C is the Temperature in Celsius Degrees and F is temperature in Fahrenheit Degrees.

Whichever one's value you know, put them in the equation and finding out the result should be easy.

For your problem the equation should be,

$40 = \left(\frac{9 C}{5}\right) + 32$

I have put 40 instead of F because the value I have in hand is temperature in Farhenheit.

=> $\frac{\left(40 - 32\right) 5}{9} = C$

Then take all the constant term to one side and keep the variable on other side.

After calculating, we get the value of the variable
=> $C = 4.4444444444444$

So the answer is 4.44 Degrees Celsius, which is equivalent of 40 degrees fahrenheit.
