The Celsius scale was developed in the 18th century to easily denote that water freezes at zero degrees and boils at 100 degrees. In the United States, the Fahrenheit scale, also developed in the 18th century, is more commonly used. Converting from Celsius to Fahrenheit requires solving two equations.
- Record your degrees in Celsius that you wish to convert to Fahrenheit
For your specific equation, you will start by writing (or inputting into a calculator) the value of 43 for your degrees Celsius that you wish to convert to Fahrenheit.
- Multiply your degrees Celsius by the factor of 1.8
The next part of your equation is to multiply 43 by 1.8. This give the result of 77.4.
- Add 32 to your previous answer
The final step is to add 32 to 77.4. This gives you the final answer of 109.4 degrees Fahrenheit.
