Temperature Conversion

Read and memorize the following information

centigrade thermometer [´sentigreid] - термометр Цельсия, термометр со стоградусной шкалой

Celsius [´selsj∋s] – шкала Цельсия

Fahrenheit [‘fær∋nhait] - Фаренгейт

degree - градус

15 0C (Centigrade) – 15 0 по Цельсию

80 0F (Fahrenheit) – 80 0 по Фаренгейту (27 0 по Цельсию)

Officially temperature is measured in degrees Centigrade (0C), but Britain and some other countries also use degrees Fahrenheit (0F).

Figure 1

To convert Fahrenheit to Celsius subtract 32 0, multiply by 5 and divide by 9.

70 0F - 32 0=38 0 * 5=190 0 :9 = 210C

To convert Celsius to Fahrenheit multiply by 9, divide by 5 and add 32 0.

21 0C * 9 = 189 0 :5=38 0 + 32 0= 70 0F

Fulfil these tasks:

1. Convert 80 0 Fahrenheit to Celsius.

2. Convert 17 0 Centigrade to Fahrenheit.
