Celsius and Fahrenheit

To convert a temperature from °C (degree Celsius) to °F (degree Fahrenheit) and vise versa, all you have to know are 2 points when water freezes and boils and you can come up with the formula by yourself because the conversion is linear. Therefore, in Celsius its easy 0°C and 100°C, for Fahrenheit you need the same points 32°F and 212°F. See below linear graphic function you can use anytime to recreate the formula of conversion.

Some Notes

Everyone used the following 2 symbols °F and °C to describe temperature.
The Fahrenheit scale is a temperature scale based on one proposed in 1724 by Dutch–German–Polish physicist Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit (1686–1736). This is the official temperature scale in the United States.
Celsius is named after the Swedish astronomer Anders Celsius (1701–1744). From 1743 on, the Celsius scale is based on 0 °C for the freezing point of water and 100 °C for the boiling point of water at 1 atm pressure. Before being renamed to honor Anders Celsius in 1948, the unit was called centigrade.
All other countries use this temperature scale.
