Instructions

  1. 1

    Determine your body's normal average temperature based on your doctor's records. If you do not have recent records, you can use 36.7 degrees Celsius because this temperature is considered to be average among humans.

  2. 2

    Multiply the body temperature by 1.8. For the average body temperature, take 36.78 and multiply it by 1.8 to get 66.2.

  3. 3

    Add 32 to the new number to finish the equation. For this example, 32 gets added to 66.2, equalling 36.8 degrees Celsius.
