- Homework Statement:
- Unsatisfied with the Celsius and Fahrenheit temperature scales, you decide to create your own. On your temperature scale, the ice point is 77° M and the steam point is 437° M, where M stands for "my scale." What temperature of your scale corresponds to 68°F?
- Relevant Equations:
Not sure, because I think you have to make your own equations.
I found the relationship M = 2F, but got the wrong answer.
437°M - 77°M = 360°M
212°F - 32°F = 180°F
∴ M = 2F
M = 2(68°)
M = 136°
But this is incorrect. The answer is actually 149°M. Please help.
