One day you notice that the outside temperature increased by 29° F between your early morning jog and your lunch at noon. What is the corresponding change in temperature in each of the following scales?

_____C

_____K

2. Relevant equations

Tc = (5/9)(Tf - 32)

T (kelvin) = Tc + 273.15

3. The attempt at a solution

Ti + 29F = Tf

Tf-Ti = 29F

Tc = (5/9)(29-32) = -1.66667C

I am confused to why this answer is incorrect.
