     Several years ago, a Geography Professor showed the class an easy way
to convert Fahrenheit to Celsius, as well as Celsius to Fahrenheit.  Here
it is:

Fahrenheit to Celsius:  (Degrees Fahrenheit - 32) Divided by 1.8 equals
Degrees Celsius.
Example:   (68 Degrees Fahrenheit - 32) divided by 1.8 equals 20 Degrees

Celsius to Fahrenheit:  (Degrees Celsius times 1.8) plus 32 equals Degrees
 Example:  (10 Degrees Celsius times 1.8) plus 32 equals 50 Degrees

* "times" means "multiplied by"

     Since those of us in the United States use Fahrenheit and those in
most other nations uses Celsius, this may be helpful to someone.  This
method is far easier to use than using the fractions 5/9 or 9/5.  
     By the way, -10 C is equal to +14 Fahrenheit.  Either way it is
expressed, it is cold.
