Image showing how to find out what the degrees in Fahrenheit is if the temperature is 21 degrees Celsius.

So 70o on the Fahrenheit scale is 21o on the Celsius scale. We got there by finding the temperature difference between freezing (32oF) and the Fahrenheit temperature and then dividing by 1.8 to find how many Celsius degrees are in that temperature difference.
We can write this as a formula: (oF – 32) ÷ 1.8 = oC OR oC = (oF – 32) ÷ 1.8
(Sometimes this formula is written as oC = (oF – 32) x Image showing five over nine. because each Celsius degree is Image showing five over nine. of a Fahrenheit degree.)
Now to answer the original question: “What is 375oF in oC?”
