    The formula is  F = \frac{9}{5}C + 32

    google is your friend. this is something you can easily find on the internet.

    perhaps it is something you want to work out. in which case you would need two values for Celsius and the corresponding values for Fahrenheit.

    if you still don't want that, consider the hint:

    To convert from Fahrenheit to Celsius subtract 32 and multiply by 5/9.
    To convert from Celsius to Fahrenheit multiply by 9/5 and add 32.

    now can you figure out the relationship?
