On the moon the surface temperature ranges from 371 K during the day to 1.09 102 K at night.

(a) What are these temperatures on the Celsius scale?

(b) What are these temperatures on the Fahrenheit scale?

2. Relevant equations

T=Tc+273.15 T=Kelvin temperature Tc=Celcius

9/5 F degrees/(1 C)

3. The attempt at a solution

I got both answers right for part a but for part b the answer solution says that my answers are incorrect.

What I did was first plugged in each temperature given in the problem separately into the equation to find celcius. I ended up with 97.85 C and -164.15 C which were correct! Then I used the second conversion 9/5 F degrees/(1 C) to find each of the temperature for farenheight using the celcius degrees answers from part a I got 176.13 degrees F and -295.15.

I think I worked this out correctly but the key says I'm wrong
