 Question 3353: To change a temperature from degrees F to C, use the formula. C=5/9 (F-32) Find the F and C intercepts of the line described in the equation.Answer by drglass(89)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!The F and C intercepts are the points at which the line crosses the F and C axes respectively. When the line crosses the F axis, its corresponding C value is 0. Likewise, when the line crosses the C axis, its corresponding F value is 0. To find the F intercept, set C = 0: becomes solving of F, we get F = 32 when C = 0 (this makes sence 0 degress C and 32 degrees F is the freezing point of water). The F intercept is 32. To find the C-intercept, set F = 0 becomes
