To convert Fahrenheit temperature to Centigrade, do the following:
1. subtract 32
2. multiply by 5
3. divide by 9

E.g 350 - 32 = 318 x 5 = 1,590 / 9 = 176.66 Celsius

To convert Centigrade temperature to Fahrenheit, do the following:
1. multiply by 9
2. divide by 5
3. add 32

E.g. 175 x 9 = 1,575 / 5 = 315 + 32 = 347 degrees Fahrenheit
