  1. Substitute the 100 degrees F

    100=9/5C+32

    subtract 32 from each side

    100-32=9/5C

    68=9/5C

    68x5/9=C
    so
    C=37.8

    Is this OK. Can you see where you went wrong?

  2. Using your equation F = (9/5) C + 32, which IS the correct equation,
    100 = (9/5) C + 32
    (9/5) C = 68
    C = (5/9)*68 = 37.78 (or 37 7/9)
