In converting the temperature from Fahrenheit to Celsius the formula is, C = (5/9)(F – 32);

*The steps of converting from Fahrenheit to Celsius are reversed here.*

*Step I*

Subtract 32 from the degrees.*Step II*

Multiply the result by 5 *Step III*

Divide the product by 9

**1.** Convert 86°F to the Celsius scale.

**Solution:**

*Step I*

Subtract 32 from the degrees.

= 86° - 32

= 54°

*Step II*

Multiply the result by 5.

= 54° × 5

= 270°

*Step III*

Divide the product by 9.

= 270° ÷ 9

= 30° C

Therefore, 86° F = 30° C

**2.** Convert 104° F to the Celsius scale.

**Solution:**

*Step I*

Subtract 32 from the degrees.

= 104° - 32

= 72°

*Step II*

Multiply the result by 5.

= 72° × 5

= 360°

*Step III*

Divide the product by 9.

= 360° ÷ 9

= 40° C

Therefore, 104° F = 40° C

**3.** Convert 113°F to the Celsius scale.

**Solution:**

*Step I*

Subtract 32 from the degrees.

= 113° - 32

= 81°

*Step II*

Multiply the result by 5.

= 81° × 5

= 405°

*Step III*

Divide the product by 9.

= 405° ÷ 9

= 45° C

Therefore, 113° F = 45° C

**4.** Convert 122°F to the Celsius scale.

**Solution:**

*Step I*

Subtract 32 from the degrees.

= 122° - 32

= 90°

*Step II*

Multiply the result by 5.

= 90° × 5

= 450°

*Step III*

Divide the product by 9.

= 450° ÷ 9

= 50° C

Therefore, 122° F = 50° C
