# Convert temperature between Fahrenheit and Celsius

To convert from between Fahrenheit and Celsius you need to know the formula which are

C = 5/9( F - 32)

I find the easiest way to remember these is to remember that 32°F is 0° C, so the +32 goes with the conversion from Celsius to Fahrenheit.

Once you know the formulas simply enter the values and solve.

**Example 1**

Convert 12° C to F.

In this case we will use the first formula.

Multiply 12 by 9/5 and then add 32

9/5*12 + 32

21 3/5 + 32 = 53 3/5 or 53.6° F.

**Example 2**

Convert 100° C to F.

In this case use the second formula.

Subtract 32 from 100 and then multiply by 5/9.

5/9(100-32)

5/9(68) = 37 7/9 = 37.777....
