## How to Convert Degree Fahrenheit to Degree Rankine

### Example: How many degree Rankine are equivalent to 41.64 degree Fahrenheit?

As;

1 degree Fahrenheit = X+459.67 degree Rankine

41.64 degree Fahrenheit = Y degree Rankine

Assuming Y is the answer, and by substitution principle;

Y equals ( 41.64+459.67 ) over 1, where X is substituted by 41.64

(i.e.) Y = ( 41.64+459.67 ) / 1 = 501.31 degree Rankine

Answer is: 501.31 degree Rankine are equivalent to 41.64 degree Fahrenheit.
