We ended up talking about recent strange weather, which of course led to a discussion of converting between temperature scales.    The equation to convert from C to F, as I learned it, is the following: F = (9/5)*C + 32    OR   F = 1.8*C + 32   Its simple Algebra to figure out the reverse: C = (F - 32)*(5/9)   Converting from Celsius to Fahrenheit is generally encountered more often, especially an American. This is because many other countries, as well as the majority of the scientific community, use Celsius.
