C=59(F−32)

The equation above shows how temperature F, measured in degrees Fahrenheit, relates to a temperature C, measured in degrees Celsius. Based on the equation, which of the following must be true?

A temperature increase of 1 degree Fahrenheit is equivalent to a temperature increase of 59 degree Celsius.

A temperature increase of 1 degree Celsius is equivalent to a temperature increase of 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit.

A temperature increase of 59 degree Fahrenheit is equivalent to a temperature increase of 1 degree Celsius.

A) I only
B) II only
C) III only
D) I and II only

because it simplifies to 59F-(59*32)

then if f goes up 1, celsius goes up 59.

no other cases work, so i think its A.

HOPE THIS HELPED!

The equation SHOULD read 5/9 (F - 32)

First is true  (if 59 is 5/9)

Second is true
