Then find the Celsius temperature when the Fahrenheit temperature is 81 degrees.Answer by CharlesG2(828)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!The conversion for Celsius to Fahrenheit temperatures is F=9/5C+32. Rewrite the formula so that C is given in terms of F. Then find the Celsius temperature when the Fahrenheit temperature is 81 degrees. F = 9/5 * C + 32 F - 32 = 9/5 * C 5/9 * (F - 32) = C (this is the formula to solve for C Celsius) now plug in 81 degrees for F 5/9 * (81 - 32) = C 5/9 * 49 = C 27 2/9 = C C is approx 27.2 degrees Celsius
