## How to Convert Degree Celsius to Degree Fahrenheit

### Example: How many degree Fahrenheit are equivalent to 72.41 degree Celsius?

As;

1 degree Celsius = (1.8*X)+32 degree Fahrenheit

72.41 degree Celsius = Y degree Fahrenheit

Assuming Y is the answer, and by substitution principle;

Y equals ( (1.8*72.41)+32 ) over 1, where X is substituted by 72.41

(i.e.) Y = ( (1.8*72.41)+32 ) / 1 = 162.338 degree Fahrenheit

Answer is: 162.338 degree Fahrenheit are equivalent to 72.41 degree Celsius.
