C = 5/9 (F - 32) is the equation for finding the Celcius temperature when the Fahrenheit temperature is known. What would solving the equation for F allow you to do?

Find the Fahrenheit temperature when the Celsius temperature is known.

Use the new equation to find temperature on a Kelvin scale.

Find the Celsius temperature when the Fahrenheit temperature is known.

You cannot solve the equation for F because it has a fraction in it.

*"You cannot solve the equation for F because it has a fraction in it." ???!!!!*

F = 32 + 9*C/5 put Celsius in on the right hand side and get Fahrenheit out on the left hand side.

The true answer is the first one: **Find the Fahrenheit temperature when the Celsius temperature is known.**

This problem follows the standard structure for a multiple choice question, namely

• one answer is correct – the first one

• one answer is almost correct – the third one

• one answer is wrong – the second one

• one answer is ridiculous – the fourth one
