  2. To derive the conversion from Celcius to Fahrenheit or vice versa you make a proportion of the freezing to boiling temperatures and then add or subtract the 32 degree difference depending on which way your conversion is going.

    • You know you are right. I think this is a plot. The stupid, the publishers, writers who use F scale though think the rest of the country can’t cope with the metric system. This of course is not so. The dating is even weirder. I mean why start with the month? Who does that?
