(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

the fahrenheit temp scale is defined to that ice melts at 32 F and water boils at 212 F. Derive formulas for converting fahrenheit to celsius and back.

2. Relevant equations

c=5/9(f-32)

3. The attempt at a solution

ok so i figured that 212-32= 180

and

100-0=100

so the ratio of c/f= 5/9

i don't know how to get the 32 part into the equation
