Hi. So this question is asking you to convert the following temperatures two degrees Celsius or degrees Fahrenheit so they give it to you and degrees Fahrenheit. You’re gonna convert to Celsius and that you give it to you in Celsius. You could occurred it to decrease Fahrenheit. So first that’s right. Are, um, temperature equations, our conversion equations. So you’re gonna what the 1st 1 is Degrees Celsius equals of 5/9 degrees Fahrenheit minus 32. And now our other equation, which is just this basically reorganized is degrees Fahrenheit equals 5 9/5 degree Celsius plus plus 32. So here are three equations and basically this equation this questions pretty easy is just plug and chug, but they give you fair. Now, you plug it into the first equation to give you Celsius, you plug it into the second equation. So is look at the first question here. They give you 95 F, so since they give you fair and if you want to convert it to Celsius, we’re gonna use the first equation. So degrees Celsius equals 9/5 times 95 because that’s the temperature to give you 95 minus 32. And the answer you should get here is 35 degrees Celsius. Now we go toe, um, part B, which is 12 F pretty cold. But we’re going to use the same equation because they’re giving you fair, and I, and you want to cover it to Celsius. So degrees Celsius equals 9/5 12 minus 32. As you can see this time, we’re going to get a negative number because 12 is less than 32 you take 32 away from 12 will be negative. So we get negative 11.1 degrees Celsius here and now for our next question, the number is 102 F. So again the same equation, because you want to find degrees…
