i can neither spell the words Fahrenheit or Celsius on the first try.
in case you're interested:
to convert Fahrenheit to Celsius, the formula is: Tc = (5/9)*(Tf-32)
to convert Celsius to Fahrenheit, do the opposite: Tf = (9/5)*Tc+32
however, the math is hard to do in your head, so better yet, learn to estimate. you can do this two ways. once you know that F and C are the same at -40, freezing is 32F and 0C, human body temp is 98.6F and 37C, and boiling is 212F and 100C, you can make an educated guess. you can also do a little approximation math in your head. subtract 32 from your F temp and divide it by 2. add 1/10 of that number back to itself and it gives you a fairly close result. or, if you're feeling really lazy, you can just subtract 30 and divide by 2, but that's pretty darned inacurate.
i don't think she still reads lj, but if anyone reading knows how to contact littleredhead, i'm not sure if she knows that Questa is flooding and they're talking about evacuating it.
