Metric and celsius systems keep us on our toes. Grandkids, try this site or this.)
Mostly, we just guess. Our first time using an oven we baked at 175 degrees to get 350.

I like to go swimming: 68° F (20° C)is the minimum water temperature for me to go swimming (without a wetsuit). 77° F (25° C) is the optimal or ideal temperature (for me) to go swimming. Those are my key-terperatures whenever I am in the United States! In Austria we have centigrades.


77° F - 32 = 45 /9 =5*5 = 25° C

1° C = 1.8° F

PS: There is one nice thing, which is may be useful in Russia in the wintertime:

-40° F = -40° C

No need to convert in this case!

Kaibert, That's good news about the 40 degrees. One measurement we'll be able to remember. We just hope we won't need to know it too often!
