We Canadians work in metric (for the most part).
It’s been at least thirty years, I think, since we moved from imperial measures to metric. Still, some things are more difficult for me than others. Kilometers are easy but meters are not, so I still think of my height in feet and inches instead of centimeters. Kilos are a nightmare — give me pounds anytime, but liters and milliliters are easy, except for teaspoons and tablespoons. Temperature in Celsius is no problem, except when it comes to conversions when I talk to people from the States for instance.
Anyone who knows a Canadian knows their constant preoccupation with weather. So I give it to you, straight from the Canadian Weather Office, the formulas to convert Celsius into Farenheit or vice-versa:
Q.How can I convert degrees Celsius (Â°C) to degrees Fahrenheit (Â°F) or vice versa?
A. The conversion formula is Â°F = Â°C x 9/5 + 32 or, in reverse, Â°C = (Â°F – 32) X 5/9.
