### Temperature Trivia

82 Fahrenheit = 28 Celsius

61 Fahrenheit = 16 Celsius

For those two temperatures, you can simply switch the numbers.

Misspelling in the title.

Here's a quick in-head method of converting C to F:

C to F: Double C, subtract 10%, add 32.

Example: 28 is 28 x 2 (56). Subtract 6 (50). Add 32 (82).

They're also the same at -40.

They are the same only if you round off to the nearest degree.

28C = 82.4F
16C = 60.8F

Here's a helpful mnemonic for a range of temps in Celsius:

Thirty is hot
Twenty is nice
Ten is cool
Zero is ice

Of course, this doesn't cover really hot, like we've had here in Texas this summer (~110 F)!

Here's the conversion:
(Celsius <-> Fahrenheit)
0 <-> 32
10 <-> 50
20 <-> 68
30 <-> 86
40 <-> 104
