20.56 degrees Celcius. Here's how you find out: 5 + 32 / 5/9 = 20.56 *** 5 is the original temperature in degrees Farenheit. *** 32 is the difference in the sense that 0 degrees Celcius are equal to 32 degrees Farenheit. *** 5/9 is the factor of conversion.

272017 The F scale has 180 degrees from freezing to boiling, and the C scale has 100. That is why we multiply by 5/9 to convert one way and 9/5 to convert the other way. The F number is adjusted by 32 degrees. To go from F to C you deduct 32 and multiply by 5/9. To go from C to F you multiply by 9/5 and add 32.
