When Anders Celsius first created the Celsius system, the lower the temperature, the hotter it was. For example, 0 degrees Celsius was the original boiling point. However, the Celsius scale was inverted after his death. The Fahrenheit scale always used greater numbers for warmer temperatures, but had not been as widely adopted as the Celsius scale. If you have a temperature in Fahrenheit, you can convert it to Celsius.

Subtract 32 from 130 to get 98.

Multiply 98 by 5 to get 490.

Divide 490 by 9 to find that 54.4 degrees Celsius is equivalent to 54.44 degrees Celsius.
