We are not able to understand how much temperature means, To solve this you can do step manually.

First We Will check How to calculate Manually Method

Convert Fahrenheit to Celsius

Formula (°F − 32) × 5/9 = °C

“F” indicates to Fahrenheit

“C” indicates to Celsius

We will show you some calculation

102 °F Fahrenheit to Celsius?

(102°F – 32) × 5/9 = 38.89°C

103 °F Fahrenheit to Celsius?
(103°F − 32) × 5/9 = 39.44°C

Convert Celsius to Fahrenheit

Formula (°C × 9/5) + 32 = °F

“C” indicates to Celsius

“F” indicates to Fahrenheit

39.4 °C to Fahrenheit ?
(39.4°C × 9/5) + 32 = 102.92°F
38.1 °C to Fahrenheit ?
(38.1°C × 9/5) + 32 = 100.58°F

Through this way you can convert Fahrenheit to Celsius.
