Celsius to Fahrenheit | °C to °F
Convert temperature, degrees Celsius to degrees Fahrenheit and show solution with steps.
Celsius °C to Fahrenheit °F Formula
°F equals °C multiplied by 9/5, plus 32.
°F = °C * 9/5 + 32
Alternatively, since 9/5 = 1.8 we can say °F equals °C multiplied by 1.8, plus 32.
°F = °C * 1.8 + 32
How to Convert Celsius to Fahrenheit
- Multiply degrees Celsius by 1.8 (or 9/5)
- Add 32 to the product from step 1
For example, to convert 21.5 degrees Celsius (centigrade) to degrees Fahrenheit, we plug our numbers into the formula as shown below:
°F = (21.5 × (9/5)) + 32
°F = (21.5 × 1.8) + 32
°F = 38.7 + 32
°F = 70.7
21.5 degrees Celsius is equal to 70.7 degrees Fahrenheit.
This calculator will show the steps to solve the °C to °F formula so you know how make the conversion yourself.
