Answer

We can write the formula used to convert from Fahrenheit to Celsius. $C = \frac{5}{9}(F-32)$ To convert from Fahrenheit to Celsius, we should subtract 32 from the temperature measured on the Fahrenheit scale and then we multiply this result by the fraction $\frac{5}{9}$. This is how we find the temperature on the Celsius scale.
