Answer

$100^{\circ}~C$

Work Step by Step

$C = \frac{5}{9}(F-32)$ We can use this formula to convert from Fahrenheit to Celsius. It is given in the question that $F = 212$ since the temperature on the Fahrenheit scale is $212^{\circ}~F$. $C = \frac{5}{9}(F-32)$ $C = \frac{5}{9}(212-32)$ $C = \frac{5}{9}(180)$ $C = 100$ The temperature on the Celsius scale is $100^{\circ}~C$
