When converting from Celsius to Fahrenheit, 37.7 degrees Celsius is equal to 99.9 degrees Fahrenheit. A 5-degree increase in Celsius temperature corresponds to a 9-degree increase on the Fahrenheit scale.
Multiplying the Celsius value by 9/5 and adding 32 converts the temperature to Fahrenheit. For example, 10 degrees Celsius multiplied by 9/5 equals 18, and adding 32 to this value converts the temperature to 50 degrees Fahrenheit.
The freezing point of water is zero degrees Celsius, or 32 degrees Fahrenheit, and the boiling point of water is 100 degrees Celsius, or 212 degrees Fahrenheit.
The Celsius scale is named after the Swedish chemist Anders Celsius, while the Fahrenheit scale was developed by the German physicist Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit.
