The formula for the interconversion between the two units is:

$\xb0\mathrm{F}=\left(\xb0\mathrm{C}\right)\left(\frac{9}{5}\right)+32\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\xb0\mathrm{C}=\left(\xb0\mathrm{F}-32\right)\left(\frac{5}{9}\right)$

At what temperatures will the readings on the Fahrenheit and Celsius thermometers be the same?
