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 = 82.4F16C = 60.8F
Here's a helpful mnemonic for a range of temps in Celsius:Thirty is hotTwenty is niceTen is coolZero is iceOf 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 <-> 6830 <-> 86 40 <-> 104
