Evaluate: F=(9)/(5)C+32

Expression: $F=\frac{ 9 }{ 5 }C+32$

Multiply both sides of the equation by $5$

$5F=9C+160$

Move the variable to the left-hand side and change its sign

$5F-9C=160$

Move the variable to the right-hand side and change its sign

$-9C=160-5F$

Divide both sides of the equation by $-9$

$C=-\frac{ 160 }{ 9 }+\frac{ 5 }{ 9 }F$

Use the commutative property to reorder the terms

$C=\frac{ 5 }{ 9 }F-\frac{ 160 }{ 9 }$
