How Do I Convert Celsius to Fahrenheit?

SEATTLE - Those who travel back and forth to Canada, or other countries on the metric system, will find temperatures in Celsius.

The official way to convert C to F is to multiply C by 1.8, and then add 32. But if you'd like a quick way to get a rough guesstimate and give your brain a break from multiplying by 1.8, you can instead take your C reading, double it, and then add 30. It'll get you within a few degrees. (20 degrees C * 1.8 = 36, add 32, = 68 degrees. Quick way: 20*2 = 40, plus 30 = 70 degrees.)

To go from F to C, you take F, subtract 32, then divide by 1.8. Or the easy way: Subtract 30, then take half.

While seated at a Starbucks, a homeless man came in and sat nearby. His scent was unpleasant and people looked at him and rolled their eyes. He was simply doing what we were all doing, drinking coffee and taking advantage of free WIFI. He brought his dog, Legacy, who was well behaved.
