Oops [b]DAMN BRACKETS[/b] -38 C = -36.4 F MY BAD! (courtesy of the conversion funtion of any decent graphing calculator [:D]) edited to add [url]http://students.washington.edu/kyle/temptable.jpg[/url] has a temperature conversion formula table. and from some other site To convert a Fahrenheit temperature into Celsius: Tc = (5/9)*(Tf-32) For example, to convert a Fahrenheit temperature of 98.6 degrees into degrees Celsius first subtract 32 from the Fahrenheit temperature to get 66.6. Then you multiply 66.6 by five-ninths to get 37 degrees Celsius. To convert a Celsius temperature into degrees Fahrenheit: Tf = ((9/5)*Tc)+32

Uh no, DoubleFeed, you were right the first time. -38 degrees C = -36.4 degrees F. I don't know why that looks wrong to you. The scales are equivalent at -40 degrees, so that answer makes sense.

Double feed, that looks right to me... Tf=(9/5)*Tc+32 Tf = Temp in F Tc = Temp in C = -38 Tf = (9 / 5)* -38 + 32 Tf = -36.4 degF
