Converting Celsius temperatures to Farenheit can be done with a simple calculation.

Here is a simple way to convert Celsius to Fahrenheit. Follow these easy steps and you will be able to tell what degrees the temperature is no matter where you are. It's only prudent at the start to give you the formula for this conversion. The formula to convert Celsius to Fahrenheit is: (c * (9/5)) + 32 = f

Multiply the Celsius temperature times 9. Example: 56 x 9 = 504

Divide the product by 5. Example: 504/5 = 100.8

Add 32 to the quotient. Example: 100.8 + 32 = 132.8

Another way to convert Celsius to Fahrenheit is: (C + 40) * (9/5) - 40 = F And there you have it. That is how you convert Celsius to Fahrenheit.

In order to convert Fahrenheit to Celsius one only has to change the dividend and divisor to 5/9. Example F - 32 * 5/9 = C Example F + 40 * 5/9 - 40 = C
