First, let's establish the equation between Farenheit and Kelvin.

We have

\(F = \frac{9} {5} ( K − 273 ) + 32\)

Now, since we want them to be equal, let's set a varianle.

Let's let K and F both be X. Thus, we have the equation

\(X = \frac{9} {5} ( X − 273 ) + 32\)

So, after we solve for X, we get that

\(X=574.25\)

So 574.25 is our answer.

Thanks! :)
