8.(iii)  In countries like USA and Canada, temperature is measured in Fahrenheit, whereas in countries like India, it is measured in Celsius. Here is a linear equation that converts Fahrenheit to Celsius:

$F = \left(\frac{9}{5} \right )C + 32$

(iii) If the temperature is 95°F, what is the temperature in Celsius?

$F = \left(\frac{9}{5} \right )C + 32$

Put F=95,

$95 = \left(\frac{9}{5} \right )C + 32$

$\Rightarrow \left(\frac{9}{5} \right )C=95 -32$

$\Rightarrow \left(\frac{9}{5} \right )C=63$

$\Rightarrow C=35$

If the temperature is 95°F, then 35 is the temperature in Celsius.
