How Do I convert Fahrenheit to Celsius?

This question comes up so many times with flight attendants as well as passengers . Everyone wants to know how to covert fahrenheit to celsius and vice versa. Here is what I think is a simple formula to do just that.

Converting Fahrenheit and Celsius

To go from Fahrenheit to Celsius

Begin by subtracting 32 from the Fahrenheit number

Divide the answer by 9

Then multiply that answer by 5

For example- if it is 70 degrees (F) Fahrenheit outside, and you want to know the temperature in (C) celsius:

70 – 32 = 38

38 / 9 = 4.2

4.2 x 5 = 21.1

It is about 21 degrees Celsius outside

To go from Celsius to Fahrenheit

Begin by multiplying the Celsius temperature by 9

Divide the answer by 5

Now add 32

Example:

20 (c) x 9 = 180

180/5 = 36

36 + 32 = 68

It is about 68 degrees Fahrenheit
