Celsius and Fahrenheit are two different temperature scales involved in the conversion of degrees Celsius to degrees Fahrenheit.

## 50 degrees Fahrenheit(°F)

Celsius and Fahrenheit are two different temperature scales involved in the conversion of degrees Celsius to degrees Fahrenheit. The Celsius scale (°C) is used as a Metric system in most countries worldwide while the Fahrenheit scale (°F) is mostly used in the United States as a unit of measurement. They both measure temperature but use different numbers when showing the readings.

The freezing point of water is measured at 0° Celsius and is shown in Fahrenheit as 32°F. To get the temperature reading in the other scale, we have to add or subtract by 32. The boiling point of water at standard atmospheric pressure is 100° Celsius but will be shown as 212° Fahrenheit. The scales rise at different rates which imply that we need to multiply to get the reading of the other scale.

To determine the calculation of degrees Celsius and Fahrenheit;

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

The fastest method of converting 10 degrees Celsius to Fahrenheit will be; multiply the temperature reading by 9/5 and then add the result to 32.

### Celsius to Fahrenheit Converter

#### `10 degrees Celsius(°C) = 50 degrees Fahrenheit(°F)`

##### Formula

10°C = 50°F is the standard principle used in the conversion. Therefore, 10 degrees Celsius is equivalent to 50 degrees Fahrenheit.

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

##### For example;

Convert 10 degrees Celsius to degrees Fahrenheit

Solution

T (°F) = 10°C x 9/5 + 32

= 50°F

#### Other methods that work

The first procedure is to multiply the temperature reading in degrees Celsius by 2. Subtract 10% from the result and then add 32 to get the temperature reading in Fahrenheit

##### For example;

Convert 10 degrees Celsius to degrees Fahrenheit

##### Solution

10 x 2 = 20

Less 10% of 20 (2) = 18

18 + 32 = 50°F
