    The Celsius scale is devised so that 0*C is the freezing point of water and 100*C is the boiling point of water. On the Fahrenheit scale, water freezes at 32*F and boils at 212*F.

    A.) Find a linear equation that relates temperature measured in Celsius and temperature measured in Fahrenheit.

    B.) The normal body temperature in human ranges from 97.6*F to 99.6*F. Convert this temperature range in degrees Celsius.
