Recall that the conversion from Celsius to Fahrenheit is given by:

$\overline{){\xb0}{\mathrm{F}}{=}{1}{.}{8}{(}{\xb0}{\mathrm{C}}{)}{+}{32}}$

Converting **98.3˚F to Celsius**:

$98.3=1.8(\xb0\mathrm{C})+32\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}98.3-32=1.8(\xb0\mathrm{C})\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\frac{66.3}{1.8}=\frac{\overline{)1.8}(\xb0\mathrm{C})}{\overline{)1.8}}$

˚C = 36.83˚C

The conversion from **Celsius to Kelvin** is given by:

$\overline{){\mathrm{K}}{=}{\xb0}{\mathrm{C}}{+}{273}{.}{15}}$

Perform each of the following temperature conversions.

98.3 ^{o}F to K (body temperature)
