Chapter 9 - Measurement - 9.3 Measuring Weight and Temperature - Exercise Set 9.3: 87

Answer

We can write the formula used to convert from Celsius to Fahrenheit. $F = \frac{9}{5}C+32$ Note that the fraction $\frac{9}{5} = 1.8$ To convert from Celsius to Fahrenheit, we should multiply the temperature measured on the Celsius scale by 1.8 and then we add 32. This is how we find the temperature on the Fahrenheit scale.
