Fahrenheit and Celsius are very different scales used to measure temperature. Both are named after their inventors—Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit and Anders Celsius. But while the Celsius system is used by almost every nation in the developed world, Fahrenheit is used only by the United States, the Bahamas, Belize, the Cayman Islands, and Palau. Thus, while nearly all U.S. doctors and health practitioners record temperatures in Fahrenheit, most body thermometers in other countries record body temperature in Celsius.

In addition, weather reports outside of the U.S. are in Celsius, which means that you should know how to convert Fahrenheit to Celsius if you are visiting a country that uses that standard.

How can you know what the temperature is between the Fahrenheit and Celsius systems? You can use these charts and an online calculator.

How to Do the Math to Convert Termperatures

To Convert Fahrenheit Temperatures to Celsius:

  • Begin by subtracting 32 from the Fahrenheit number.
  • Divide the answer by 9.
  • Then multiply that answer by 5.

Here's an example:
Change 95 degrees Fahrenheit to Celsius: (95 - 32)/9*5
95 minus 32 is 63.
Then, 63 divided by 9 is 7.
Finally, 7 times 5 is 35 degrees Celsius.

To Convert Celsius Temperatures to Fahrenheit;

  • Begin by multiplying the Celsius temperature by 9.
  • Divide the answer by 5.
  • Now add 32.

Here's an example:
Change 20 degrees Celsius to Fahrenheit: 20*9/5 + 32
20 times 9 is 180.
Then 180 divided by 5 is 36.
Finally, 36 plus 32 is 68 degrees Fahrenheit.

Walking in Hot and Cold Weather

An old Scandinavian rhyme translates as, "There is no bad weather, just bad clothing" (weather and clothing rhyme in Swedish and Norwegian). The saying suggests that you shouldn't forsake enjoying the outdoors when you think it is too cold or too hot, you just need to be prepared. Knowing how to dress correctly for the weather will make it more enjoyable as well as safe. Understand the heat index and wind chill to know when it is too extreme to exercise outdoors.
