Temperature can be measured in two different common units: degrees Celsius and degrees Fahrenheit.

f represents the temperature in degrees Fahrenheit as a function of the temperature c in degrees Celsius.

F= 32+1.8c

What is the temperature increase in degrees Fahrenheit that is equivalent to a temperature increase by 10 degrees Celsius?

Change in F = 1.8*change in C.

 

To see this, let F1 = 32 + 1.8*C1  and F2 = 32 + 1.8*C2

 

F2 - F1 = (32 + 1.8*C2) - (32 + 1.8C1)  = 1.8*(C2 - C1)
