  1. Rewrite the problem with the appropriate number

    Write the equation with the appropriate temperature for Fahrenheit that you wish to convert. It appears as the following equation: °C = (140°- 32) × 5/9.

  2. Solve the parenthesis

    The next step is to solve the numbers within the parenthesis by subtracting 32 from your Fahrenheit temperature. This may result in a negative number. In our example the parenthesis results in 108. Here is an example: °C = (140°- 32) × 5/9.

  3. Multiply by the fraction

    Multiply 108 by 5 and divide the resulting answer by 9. In this equation, 108 times 5 results in 540. The 540 is then divided by 9 which results in 60 degrees.
