|Two scales are used to measure temperature.
The Celsius scale, part of the metric system, was invented in 1741 by Swedish
astronomer Anders Celsius (1701-1744). The Celsius scale has the
freezing point of water at 0° C. The scale most frequently used
in the United States is the Fahrenheit scale, invented in 1714 by German
physicist Gabriel Daniel Fahrenheit (1686-1736). On the Fahrenheit
scale, the boiling point of water is 212°F, and the freezing point
To convert Celsius temperatures to Fahrenheit,
use the formula F= 9/5C + 32.

The greenhouse effect may raise the average
temperature of Earth 8°F by the year 2050. What will be the average
temperature of Earth in degrees Celsius at that time?
