Question:

use the following formula to answer the question
F=9c divided by 5 plus 32

rearange the formula to solve for c

how many degrees fahrenheit would it be it it was:

0 degrees celcius

-10 degrees celcius

-46 degrees celcius

Hi Corey
You have

F = ^{(9 C)}/_{5} + 32
I would first multiply both sides by 5 to eliminate the fraction.
5 F = 5 ^{(9 C)}/_{5} + 5 32

5 F = 9 C + 5 32
Now subtract 5 32 from each side
5 F - 5 32 = 9 C

5 (F - 32) = 9 C
Finally divide both sides by 9 to get
^{5}/_{9} (F - 32) = C
