Hey, can someone help me with this problem, I have no idea what to do. Thanks!

At what temperatures will the readings on the Fahrenheit and Celsius thermometers be the same?

I set up a formula and solve for x but I got a wrong answer.

So...

F= 1.8(C) +32

F = (1.8(5(F-32)/9) + 32

= 76

I believed I did this wrong. Im still very confuse. Can u tell me what I did wrong. - Sep 11th 2009, 08:24 PMskeeter
