F=-108.4

#### Work Step by Step

The formula for temperature is as follows: (F - 32) * 5/9 C=degrees Celsius F=degrees Fahrenheit Step 1) Given the temperature in degrees Celsius (-78), the exercise is asking for this same temperature in Fahrenheit. To do this, all you would have to do is substitute -78 for wherever you see C, and then solve for F (See Image) Step 2) F will equal -108.4 after solving it
