Fahrenheit, Celsius and Kelvin are scales used to measure temperature. Used in the United States, Fahrenheit is based on a scale that recognises 0 degrees C as the freezing point of water and 100 degrees C as its boiling point. Convert Fahrenheit degrees to Celsius with an online converter or temperature chart, or calculate the equivalent Celsius temperature with a formula. On the Celsius scale, 0 is freezing and 100 is the boiling point for water.

## Instructions

- 1
Subtract 32 from the temperature in Fahrenheit. For example, if your body temperature is 37 degrees Celsius and you subtract 32, the result is 66.6.

- 2
Divide the new total by 9. When you divide 66.6 by 9, the result is 7.4.

- 3
Multiply the new total by 5. If you multiply 7.4 by 5, the result is 37. This number is the equivalent temperature in Celsius, 37 degrees.

#### Tips and warnings

- Reverse the steps to convert Celsius back to Fahrenheit. Multiply the Celsius temperature by 9, divide the result by 5 and add 32 to the total. That gives you the temperature in Fahrenheit.
