Frame 4-40

Fahrenheit scale is 180 (212 32 ) and the number of degrees between

0 C

freezing and boiling water on the Celsius scale is 100 (100 0 ). This

means that one degree on the Celsius scale is equal to 1.8 degrees on

100 C

the Fahrenheit scale (180/100 = 9/5 = 1.8). Likewise, one degree on the

Fahrenheit scale is equal to 0.5556 degrees (rounded to nearest ten-

thousandth) on the Celsius scale (100/180 = 5/9 = 0.55555555...).

Five degrees on the Celsius scale is equal to ______ degrees on the
