# 425 degrees Fahrenheit to Celsius

The Fahrenheit scale and Celsius scale both measure temperature but differ in their unit sizes.

## 218.333 degrees Celsius(°C)

The Fahrenheit scale and Celsius scale both measure temperature but differ in their unit sizes. This is because there are two points that define the scales. The water freezes to ice at a temperature of 0 degrees Celsius while shown in the Fahrenheit scale as 32°F. While 212°F marks the boiling point of water in the Fahrenheit scale, it hits 100°C in the Celsius scale. Therefore, there is a difference of 100 and 180 degrees apart in the unit size of Celsius and Fahrenheit respectively.

When the Fahrenheit scale reads 425°F, the Celsius scale will be at 218.333°C. Although the Fahrenheit is commonly used in the United States, degrees Celsius was widely adopted by many countries in different parts of the world.

To determine the calculation of 425 degrees Fahrenheit to degrees Celsius;

180/100 can be simplified as 9/5 whereas 100/180 can be simplified as 5/9.

If you want to get the temperature in degrees Celsius, we subtract 32 from the temperature reading in degrees Fahrenheit. Multiply by 5/9 to determine the reading.

### Fahrenheit to Celsius Converter

#### `425 degrees Fahrenheit(°F) = 218.333 degrees Celsius(°C)`

##### Formula

425°F = 218.333° Celsius is the standard principle used in the conversion. Therefore, it implies that the 425 degrees Fahrenheit is equivalent to 218.333 degrees Celsius.

T (°C) = [T (°F) – 32] x 5/9 is the method for converting degrees Fahrenheit to degrees Celsius.

##### For example;

Convert 425 degrees Fahrenheit to degrees Celsius.

##### Solution

T (°C) = [425°F – 32] x 5/9

= 218.333° Celsius

#### Other methods that work

We can also use a different procedure to determine the results. First, you will add 40 to 425 degrees Fahrenheit and then multiply by 5/9. Add 40 to the result to get the temperature in degrees Celsius.

##### For example;

Convert 425 degrees Fahrenheit to degrees Celsius

##### Solution

425°F + 40 = 465

= 465 x 5/9 = 258.333

= 258.333 - 40 = 218.333° Celsius
