On Francophone Countries

Unit of Measure!

Francophone countries, as well as many others, use the metric system. These countries measure temperature in degrees centigrade or Celsius, instead of Fahrenheit.

Converting Temperatures from Celsius to Fahrenheit

The conversion is °C x 9/5 + 32 = °F.

So if the temperature was 15°C, it would be; 15°C x 9/5 = 27

27 + 32 = 59°F

If it was 59°F, it would probably be sometime in September!
