Q:
# 162° F to C: Converting 162° Fahrenheit to Celsius

Accepted Solution

A:

162° F to C: Converting 162° Fahrenheit to Celsius
Methods
Converting 162° F to C Mathematically
There is a specific formula to use when converting 162° Celsius to Fahrenheit:
C
=
(
F
−
32
)
×
5
9
C = (F - 32) × \frac{5}{9}
C = ( F − 32 ) × 9 5
So, to convert 162° F to C, we will want to insert the Fahrenheit value into the equation:
C
=
(
162
−
32
)
×
5
9
C = (162 - 32) × \frac{5}{9}
C = ( 162 − 32 ) × 9 5
Then we can solve the equation:
C
=
130
×
5
9
C = 130 × \frac{5}{9}
C = 130 × 9 5
C
=
130
×

9
=
72.222
C = 130 × \frac{5}{9} = 72.222
C = 130 × 9 5 = 72.222
(If the decimal is really long, we can round to the nearest three decimal places.)
C
=
72.222
C = 72.222
C = 72.222
So:
162° Fahrenheit = 72.222° Celsius
