# Converting Celsius to Fahrenheit

Celsius has a melting point of zero (0°) and a boiling point of 100°. The concept behind Celsius is that it is easier to use because of this scale. Fahrenheit has a melting point of 32° and a boiling point of 212°. A person could also argue that Fahrenheit is better for weather temperatures because it describes the temperature quickly without the person having to consider decimals.

**Mathematical Conversion**

To convert from Celsius to Fahrenheit you multiple the Celsius temperature by 1.8 and add 32.

To convert from Fahrenheit to Celsius you substract 32 and then multiply by 5/9 (.5556).

A Lifehacker article notes that you can use 2 as your multiplier instead of 1.8 and then add 32 and get a number that is fairly close to the more exact result.

You can also remember that 20° Celsius is room temperature, 25° Celsius is just getting out of the mid 70s on Fahrenheit, 30° Celsius and its starts getting quite warm outside (above the mid 80s) and 40° degrees Celsius is a very hot summer temperature.
