###### Fahrenheit Scale

More familiar in the United States is the Fahrenheit scale in which the freezing point of water is 32°F (0°C) and the boiling point is 212°F (100°C). To convert from C° to F° use the formula:

$$F° = {9 \over 5}C° + 32$$

and to convert from F° to C° use:

$$C° = {5 \over 9} (F° - 32)$$

##### 0°C, 100°C

On the Celsius scale, the freezing point of water is __________ and the boiling point of water is __________.
