How hot is it?

The Celsius scale is derived from the Fahrenheit scale by making a linear adjustment. The Celsius scale was created to make the freezing point of water 0 and the boiling point 100 degrees Celsius, as Fahrenheit measures these two points at 32 and 212 degrees respectively.

There is one point the Celsius and Fahrenheit scales have in common. What is it?


  1. Really, really cold. I was in 40 below (both scales) in Leningrad back in '87.

    1.8C + 32 = F
    1.8x + 32 = x

    and solve.

  2. that'd be -40.
